Nitpicking on terminology: a skin should only be responsible for 
rendition concerns, doing pre-publishing/skinning transformations should 
not be part of a 'skin' but of a project-specific pipeline, IF we allow 
people to use Forrest without adopting 'our' DTDs.

Your comments, please - I know this might sound harsh but I don't want 
to be everything for everybody.
