      Scott Ambler's concept of a "Generalising Specialist" may be
      pertinent here; one's knowledge becomes both broader
      and deeper as time progresses, becoming more flexible
      and more generally useful by learning the basics of a broad
      range of skills, while also becoming more expert in a few
      specialisations. Perhaps the concept of progression from
      Apprentice through Journeyman to Master is appropriate,
      without specifying those topics in which one may become
      master.
