Yeah, I've got a thought. "Craft" is not a
derogatory description of technical writing or any
other activity.

Who said it was?

Well, you started the thread with a post that included the line, "Why? Because I have a process. If it were craft, I'd be King Workaround, Lord of the Makeshifts." I read that as a mild deprecation of craft. If it wasn't intended that way, I apologize to you; but I think it led to some interesting discussion in any case.
