Please don't associate with individual people.
Decisions about project direction are made by
the community.

Is there a "css inheritance" issue with a dispatcher-enabled
site? If not, then please add a comment to say so.

I think that the issue should remain open. Someone might
need to continue with skins for a while, i.e. all those
people who went against our advice and developed their
own skins.

If one of those people wants to fix this open issue
then they can.
