I'd argue these other disciplines are not some mystic
unreachable goal that requires a graduate degree, but
skills related to writing that can be adopted by
technical writers who wish to move forward. It's part
of the definition of "writer" and not "technical
writer," although technology is involved.

I think it's important to note that technology is far
more pervasive in 2007 than it was in 2000, even, and
people are looking for more than WTFM. By taking on
multiple roles, you concentrate knowledge, and I think
serve the development process better and with better
results, which benefits everyone.
