How so? It's Friday afternoon here so my brain's already moving into
weekend mode :-)

It says about TWers:

They're the interface between product and user; user advocates
Work for manufacturers yet try to meet user needs
Ensure products are used effectively, safely etc
Analyse product... (effectively user/task analysis)
Analyse specifications... (OK if you're lucky!)
Develop docs to help users enjoy... (maybe not the word!)
Have to be well trained and educated in competencies...

While maybe a bit 'academic' I don't see how it would exclude anyone
from this list. We are all well trained aren't we? :-)
