On this point, think of all those who started as Artist and then progressed to Co-ploter/Artist then to writer/artist combo (wish we had a term to respect that blending) and then writer with someone else drawing their stories. Some like Giffen has a step where someone Dialogues his breakdowns. I'm thinking off the top of my head of those like Grell, Miller, Truman, Byrne, etc.

Yeah, they're all good examples.

EVS was talking about the shift in focus to artists in the 90s having since shifted back to writers in the past decade which, while not necessarily a bad thing, leaves many artists frustrated as they can be forgotten about in the storytelling process (giving artists dialogue heavy issues for example which is a lot of talking heads) so that artists are also looking to writing as a way to get a little more creative freedom.

He cites Scott Kolins' on Solomon Grundy and Tony Daniel on Batman as recent examples.
