They just show they are too specialised before and too comfortable after.
This is an intellectual quality to search around the field you are
working in (and engraving is indeed an important crossing of graphical
and musical art), and
this is an intellectual quality to recognize that minority is not
synonym of false.

I bet most of composers have no idea of history of intellectual
property in music,
no idea of history of engraving...
I know many composers and conductors who have no idea of organ (indeed
a very important instrument in history of composition and orchestra)
And have no idea of difference between improvisation and composition
before Mahler and R. Strauss

etc etc

But I like the answer of somebody else, you can enlarge to:
"oh sad to say, I am only a composer, I write music and must use a
musician friendly program like lily, finale is definitely too
complicated for a non-computer-freak (indeed it is)"
