Hmmm, I'm not so sure. I mean, what if we add some value? The skin would 
not use them, but still seem as if it does... I would actually make 
every skin declare every tag it uses, especially now that we are making 
features optional.

This is any case.

What about: finishing off the copyless branch bugs, merging with trunk, 
then barnching again for this, and releaseing the trunk ASAP?
