While I agree with you that much of the work of modern technical
writing involves skills other than language skills, I take exception
to one of your categories:

As far as I'm concerned, this task is inextricably connected with
organizing the information in the first place, and that skill, I
maintain, is a critical part of the writing function itself.

Just my $.02
