Same answer as for "technical communicator": If there's a job listing for a "documentarian" with experience documenting APIs and quality processes, then by gosh you're a documentarian. If they're advertising for a technical writer, better stick with the old name.

Those who film documentaries and also documenting things.

Playing Devil's advocate here, why can't documentary film makers and technical writers/communicators share the title "documentarian?"
