+1 I don't agree, but an interesting article anyways.

I have worked with DBAs who had PhDs and could have still done development, but they moved past that to concentrate on schema development, scaling, etc. Toss into the mix modern programs of master data development inside organizations and people who are characterized as DBAs have a very sophisticated role.
