There has been some discussion around this, and it is clear that different people have seen different things work well. There is no single solution. It is up to whoever assembles a team to know (or observe) the strengths and weaknesses of its members. In some cases, combining roles works well. In others, letting people specialize is preferable.

All team members should be compensated for their contribution. No role--product management, project management, senior developer--is inherently more valuable than another. My own experience has been that some outfits value managers more than developers, so they end up with developers going into management when it would have been better, for everyone concerned, if they had remained pure developers.
