I've seen tech writing under marketing, under
engineering, under support, under training, and as
itself. All situations have their pros and cons. If
the marketing info is exact and contains the correct
amount of technical info for the purpose of the
document, then why question it. Marketing indeed
should have a say in how documents are presented, as
marketing is ultimately responsible for the company's
presence and appearance.

Are you having some sort of power struggle with the VP
of Marketing or are you just concerned? Have you
talked to this person at all? Sometimes small shops
offer great communication opportunities; people hold
titles of varying degrees but communication and input
is usually pretty flat (meaning groundlings and
royalty can communicate effectively without rank
getting in the way). Ultimately the senior management
has the final say, but usually they'll be open to
reasonable input, especially if the source is credible
and the info is solid and accurate.
