Actually I can think of this as a management function. So, I suppose that
your boss really does not want to give you any "management" functions.

In my current job, I am now involved in the technical specification of the
scripting language that I am documenting. The discussions are both
technical and political.

When trying to document something, it is not unusual for me to find some
flaw in the product. Usually I cooperate with the other software engineers
in solving the flaw itself, and discuss whether the flaw should be solved
or documented.
