Hmm. Interesting point. I've heard the same said about SEO services. :)
But are end consumers of the services aware of this distinction? I see plenty of developers that know this ... but business stakeholders? And so who is hiring developers for 100% more money? Is it technologists hiring other technologists? Or perhaps in larger companies, the technologists have more authority to pay more for better tech and skills? Most SMBs and entrepreneurs I know will look at rates on oDesk and start from there.
