Sandia started to do that when they created the Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff classification. As I stated in an earlier post, it allowed Sandia to keep a “world class” mathematician as a mathematician instead of a manager. 
In other occupations, does the manager of less than 200 people with only 2 or at most 3 levels of management actually need a expensive high level manager? “Goodbye Mr. Chips” showed a really great headmaster but it was his abilities as a teacher was most important. 
Also a public school principal is not a top boss but middle management.
