This sounds analogous to what happened to technical writers in the 90s. The DTP operators who used to convert our text drafts to formatted masters were phased out and we were expected to be able to do that ourselves. And now marketing writers are having to take over the work of phased out web developers, both in-house and outsourced. The new meaningless job title substitutes puffery for extra pay.

Instead of tech writer + web developer, expect to see tech writer + marketing content director.

technical content writing with webmastering.
