    Would a full stack architect lay bricks for the building? Would a full stack chef bus the tables too? Would a full stack Dentist build the chair you sit in?

      I don't think they need to every day. But I'd very much like to hope my architect could lay bricks, and my chef has bussed a table.

        Sure, I could see the benefits to those scenarios but I don't see how it's relevant to the discussion of what we expect a Full Stack 'designer' or anything else to be proficient at.

      I don't think your analogies take into account the context of when and where such things are needed. In really small places the person making your food DOES bring it to you. No a dentist doesn't build the chair, but they do have input into the features it should have.

      In a small company or startup it is far more cost efficient to have a designer who does more than just visual design. It also makes the visual design that much better when the designer actually understands and works with the relevant technologies.
