After all, Java is just Java and the difference between a J2EE and a J2ME developer has mostly to do with the APIs they know and use most frequently.
Even between two J2EE developers this can vary a lot. For instance, some J2EE developers are really good at JSP, others are better with EJB and/or web services, some are even experts primarily in build and deployment.
What we all have in common is that we are most effective and efficient when we know the core language and J2SE APIs very well.

I agree with you. Additionally, I am not fond of the emphasis on "editions". I think it takes our eye off of the ball. I also think that the emphasis on editions has create silos and may have prevented or slowed functionality from appearing across those editions.
I remember when I first started learning Java 2D Java 3D and I thought that some of the technologies would be useful on devices. Asking when we could expect to see those capabilities on J2ME was considered an odd question. Ironically, the people who found it odd were gamers and it winds up that games on devices is pretty hip after all.
Java is Java. Editions only matter to me when I think about how an application needs to be deployed. On a device? On a desktop? Will I need a server?
Just my opinion.
