I disagree.

But what the heck, it's Friday and 5 o'clock (well, somewhere ...).

Cheers.

My argument is untouched by any claims of high-risk technical documents.
I still believe that the processes that go into producing technical
documents mitigate the risks of the documents. So that the end result
of technical writing is low-risk, although business documents contain
risks that exceed the scope of mitigation, so those documents have a
higher risk. If a technical writer is producing a document that can
risk failure after its release, then maybe that writer should not be
writing.
