You are correct in stating that very rarely do
diagrams alone do the job - text is most often
necessary. But text needs to be properly structured
(organized). And this structuring is an analysis
activity. And, especially for systems of any
complexity, analysis needs to be rigorous - that is
model (diagram) based. This is true whether the final
deliverable contains diagrams or not.
