I've got to believe some of these job ads are created to attempt to
replace a specific resource that's leaving the company, who HAS those
skills. That would explain the seemingly arbitrary skill requirements.

Think of your own expertise, and how you would phrase an ad looking for
somebody who was basically your clone in terms of skills. Might be a
rather arcane list for some of us.

Might even have to loosen up a little on the requirements - maybe the
prospective applicants wouldn't HAVE to play bagpipes professionally.....

Another possibility: the person is stepping over from another position.
Sometimes during layoffs, positions are cut, but the company wants to keep
the person. So they create a new job for the person in another department
that has funding. However, legally they have to advertise it and accept
resumes. They create a job description only the specific person can likely
