To me, as generally used in tech-writer shop talk, "consumer" means
mass-market, as opposed to "enterprise," big corporations and the
like. I would never use "consumer" to mean "target audience."

I thought it was perfectly clear that Karl meant "I assume a lot of
you write for a mass-market consumer audiences, but everything I write
is for internal use and for government regulators."
