Thanks for the support, Dan.

Actually, I think that knowing how to code depends on what you are documenting. At my company, we produce middleware software mainly for developers, and technical writers are in charge of writing the code examples, included in the user documentation (but developers are in duty to check their correctness). As you can see, knowing how to code is a must here, although not at developer level.

In general I'm not interested so much in where CONSTANT_A is supposed to stay within the implementation (usually hidden from the user) and what technique will avoid creating too much temp objects, but how the user can gain access to the API and make use of it. Sometimes this is discussed at iteration meetings, sometimes it's not. But considering your arguments, I think I should attend them as much as possible.
