Yeah, but right now I find the names in the skinconf.xml sometimes
1) confusing
2) missleading

I would rather give the skinconf - elements new names then vice versa. 
Not always but sometimes I reckon it would be a good idea.

Footer or header are actually good examples to explain why 1) & 2):
Footer and header are very common but it sais something about the 
location of the container itself and nothing about the content it 
contain! A header is IMO in the head of the document, right? Now you 
have e.g.
<div id="header">
<div id="logo"/>
<div id="slogan"/>
</div>

Then you decide (one day) that the slogan should go into the bottom of 
the page!

...but when the slogan is in the bottom of the page the name "header" is 
missleading.

I reckon the name branding instead of header is more appropriate. Did I 
explained myself?

King regards
