a small point but why not have both <ws> and <skip> be aliased to each
other? i like the <skip> connection but <ws> is (usually) about skipping
white space which is likely the most commonly skipped text. both names
have value so we should have both. and i think in most cases you won't
see many explicit <skip> or <ws> as they will be implied by the
whitespace in the rule/term/whatever that has skipping enabled.
