Think differently here;

The "writer" is being hired as the expert. The writer is not someone who
takes the work of others and makes it sound better. A made up sample in the
case I used, that would mean creating a 100 or 200 page dummy document with
all the engineering detail of the real thing -- and which would have no
relevance without containing everything would be included for the actual
machine -- Now put that into the context of the interviewer who knows you came
from a competitor -- and he would know where the information came from! So
the whole idea is pretty lame.
