I think this is a good point. All certification programs that I've seen
(plumbers, mechanics, etc.) are ploys to keep others out of "their" territory
not efforts to improve the group performance. I hope technical writing
doesn't follow this route. I prefer to see the field open to everyone who
wants to try. The market will weed out those who can't perform.
