Um, really? The all-too-common expertise extremes are both very
undesirable, and I don't see any value in arguing over which one is
better than the other.

The archetypal "net" security guy who doesn't understand SOP or the
consequences of <script>-related mixed content when auditing a web app
is about as harmful as a "web app" security guy who can't tell an
integer overflow from a format string bug - that is, unless they
correctly recognize and acknowledge their limitations, which is almost
never the case.
