Excellent question.

It is my experience that writing obliges one to structure one's thought and 
make clear concepts that otherwise, expressed orally, are presented more 
vaguely.

This is certainly a benefit, as is good, solid procedural documentation.

There is the general question as to whether tech writers or engineers should be 
doing the work of documentation creation.

To answer your question, it is seen as more work at this initial stage.

It looks as though the documentation they create has the potential to reduce 
the time they spend on those tasks. Aside from being "open" to the new 
responsibilities, do they see how it benefits them? Or do they simply see more 
work?
