Not everyone can write a document that:

* Reduces the risk of mistakes ("Was that Mars probe supposed to use
metric or English units?")
* Reduces the time spent answering support calls ("Try the instructions
on page 17, and call me back if it still doesn't work.")
* Makes the product look good ("They cost about the same, but this one's
got better instructions.")
* Illuminates processes and design details ("If that flow chart is
accurate, we've got about 400 lines of unnecessary code.")
* Satisfies regulatory requirements ("Can you make that document work
for the FDA *and* the ISO audits?")
