While I disagree with this statement, but I do understand the reasoning. A
person with little or no knowledge of the topic can bring the new user
perspective and provide somewhat of a usability test for the document. I
think this approach only works on very simple concepts. There are some
topics, such as system development or database concepts, that force you to
assume some prerequisite knowledge. What I prefer is for the technical
editor to have knowledge of the topic but also be able to understand the
topic as a new user would.
