My guess for the most likely reason would be that there's no real
consensus among writers or those who hire writers as to what the
job requirements are. And whether there is any standardization or
not, companies will still write their job descriptions to reflect what
they think the people they hire should do and set the pay
accordingly.

I would definitely cede to your experience in that matter. But if this
is the case, why haven't we achieved any kind of standard for TW
certification yet? Where would you begin? What would constitute our
best practices?

Is it really just because the man wants to keep us down? :) I'm only
being partially facetious--does a lack of standardization really allow
companies to determine what they think the tech writer should do, and
pay them accordingly?
