Give up this quaint quest for 17th century guild "Titles".

All work breakdowns are arbitrary and capricious.

In any give situation, but particularly in software design and development,
a broad mix of skills is required. Specialization to the degree that
the responses on this list have discussed is evolutionary suicide.

Change, adaptability, the ability to learn quickly and apply new knowledge,
these are the skills of the 21ST.

Combine the titles into UUID (User Usability Interface Designer) and get on
with it.
