Well there's a difference between 'orchestrating' and 'arrangeing'. Technically the former falls under the unbrella of the later, but quite often orchestrating means simply putting to paper the short hand of the what the composer wanted anyway.
The talk of wanting the arranger to work off the MIDI files sounds similar to what a Hollywood orchestrator does -- the actual amount that is the actual orchesator's original work can vary, but in some cases it's close enough to the point that 'copyist' would fit better whereas others the tern 'arranger' would fit.

As for 'not carring about arrangement, only composing', I find that a weird statement. Composition still needs to be cohesive in some form. I assume he means doesn't full flesh things out with full instrumentation.
