Frankly, and whilst this discussion is hugely valid and interesting, I've
never held much sway with job descriptions and titles. The culture and how
*I* work defines what I am to the company. It is soon obvious, as I sit on
desks, and talk to everyone in the company, that I am more than just "that
bloke who does manuals". This is matched by the documents (manuals and
otherwise) that I maintain and challenge.

Put me in a box if you want but know that I'll be sneaking out whenever I
need to!
