I've often credited engineers as authors on major documents. It strokes their egos and encourages their cooperation on future projects.

Even on minor documents, where listing an author would be overly obtrusive, I'll use the document properties author field to credit the owner.

I've taken the credit only when the document was my project in its entirety.
