I can see the logic that since librarins are generalists (well, at least in
a relative sense) then they can see "the big picture" and make balanced and
responsible collection development decisions.  Assuming they're good at their
jobs.
It did seem for a moment it was advocated that librarians should select with
fair disregard for the input of facualty.  That would amount to librarians
choosing a researcher's tools.  That didn't sound right.
Thanks for your clarification, David.  Now, I can see more clearly the
sentiment of the list.  Being a student of Library Science, I did want to
find the opinions of those established in the field.
