Many of these "less important" roles are difficult to get out of. One idea that I had at a previous job was to write documentation for 75% of my time and learn to test 25% of my time. At the time, the idea was shot down and I have not attempted to try again. Going forward, I will just do it with the risk of low productivity for a couple of weeks or months. Sometimes, a person just has to risk not asking for permission. Personal growth is worth that risk of loosing a job.
