I believe that's the next step. IIRC, the first step was to separate
"technical writer" from other types of writers, and the next step is
to move "technical writers" to "technical communicators" (which will
include writers, editors, etc.).

See a quote from Rick at
http://notebook.stc.org/and-the-2010-presidents-award-winners-are/.
"He spoke about the process with BLS and what the next steps are, and
pointed out that this is the first time “technical communicator” has
appeared in a government publication. That, he said, is the first step
in getting the profession included in the next Standard Occupational
Classification (SOC) System."
