I think it probably has more to do with headhunters. Years ago when I worked
for GE, most of the engineers were titled "Member of Technical Staff". When
I asked about the vague title, the reply was that headhunters typically use
a person's title to decide if that person was worth going after. The vague
title, with no job characteristics, was meant to hang on to valuable people.

So I suppose all writers could be Technical Writers, and yet vary in their
grade and job responsibilities (and pay) simply by org chart function.

Does anyone have any thoughts on a company in which all technical
writers are "Technical Writers," regardless of experience, number of
years, etc.? Maybe they think there will be hard feelings if one
is "just" a technical writer and the next person is "senior"
