I don't think we have any problem that Wordpress, Drupal, etc haven't addressed
yet. Skins should be about skinning, not about providing extra functionality.
As long as modifying the Vector skin is a pain, most MediaWikis will look

Good skinning includes:

* Changing typefaces and font sizes
* Changing colors and backgrounds
* Changing variable/fixed width
* Changing the position of navigation bars horizontal or vertical left/right
* Customizing the footer

Technically, MediaWiki and vector allow you to do this... In practice doing
this and maintaining your changes is a pain that almost nobody wants to go

I agree that having skins with different functionality for plain MediaWiki and
WMF sites would be really troublesome for many reasons. Good skinning +
extensions available to anybody should suffice.
