No, not at all. Have you never had the situation that someone else was documenting according to specifications while you were struggling to get the whole thing to work and meet the deadline?

The guy who writes the code does not cut corners because he feels like it. It's the usual case of having something that works reasonably well until the deadline is reached. No time to inform the guy who writes the documentation.

The writer also is busy enough to write down all that stuff in a clear and complete way. He does not want to change too much, as he always got enough left to write about. He just sticks to the specs and probably is not even aware of the changes that have accumulated.

After the deadline both move on to their next assignments and never get the time to clean up. A few versions down the line the documentation will differ from the implementation in many places, but have you ever heard a boss say that the documentation needs to be redone?
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
