Generally, it strikes me as "Tech Writing 101," except for the fact that the "nothing" in "knows nothing" is always going to be relative. For example, even the tired old "write instructions for making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich" exercise starts with the assumption that the reader won't have to be told how to plant wheat and grapes.
