There is also the question of whether the people trying to
put forth definitions have an agenda that is either exclusionary
or inclusionary. People who are employees at the staff level
are more likely to have exclusionary views that tend shrink the
pool of qualified (in their view) candidates with whom they must
compete for available work; people like me who are at the
staffing level are more likely to have inclusionary views that
expand the pool of candidates to draw in any who we think
are or can be developed into writers of documentation that
requires highly specific subject knowledge.
