Progammers and programmers' supervisors are almost never the "go to" people for
decisions about what is customer-suitable; you go to those people for answers
about what is technically accurate. Product/customer "command decisions" should
come from product/marketing managers, and unless you're working in a small
startup where these people don't exist or a giant comglomerate with a silo-type
organization that is run like the DoD and the managers get all huffy when
approached by someone who isn't also a manager these people need to be included
in the writers' contacts from the earliest document planning stage.
