Reiner - how do you define 'musicology' or 'an academic discipline'? And why would the study of orchestration not be part of these (it often is)?

Well, I would rather go for a description like

where you could sit around and discuss what it meant,

In other words, the sphere of "criticism", rather than of "creativity".  What this ultimately "achieves" is questionable,  and what benefit accrues for the creative/interpretative practitioners is even more questionable.  I would place Rimsky in the orbit of the "creatives" (since he was a prolific composer) who shared his experience with others who wished to create. 

Perhaps some of this has to do simply with competing interest groups all vying for equal shares of the higher-education-funding pie

That seems to be the motivation behind most "musicology".
