Me too -- I'm a one man band combining graphic design, html, css, 
javascript ajax, php and mysql all rolled into one while observing 
best practices, unobtrusive and semantic code, and addressing W3C 
compliance and accessibility issues.

In other words, there's a lot to know to get it right. I can see how 
the division of responsibility can become blurred in a team 
environment while working on large projects. Fortunately for me, my 
projects don't normally exceed $20k and that appears to be a nice 
cut-off for me.

In my experience, projects that are larger can go to a team, those 
smaller can be handled by one person.
