I don't think it's necessary, but I don't see a necessary problem
with, say, the STC offering a certification that someone meets
a standard of technical writing skill (though I'm curious as to
what exactly would be required). Licensing scares me, frankly,
in part for the precedent it sets. If the government can license
technical writers, the next step is for it to license journalists
or novelists; where's my passport?
