No worse than 'data architect' or 'system architect'.

Actually, Information Architecture is very analogous because
a building architect has to balance between aesthetics and
practicality based on how the users will interact with what they're
designing, with the flexibility to meet future unknown needs.
(It's no coincidence that most IAs have 'How buildings learn'
on their bookshelves). Sounds pretty much like IA to me.

Is claiming expertise A Bad Thing?
