I agree with what you are saying, but the article was about programmers who write documentation for other developers. In those cases, good writing is critical. Writing that is difficult to understand, incomplete, or (worse yet) written in a matter that allows other developers to draw incorrect conclusions will likely produce more errors in the code.
