This should only be a problem when your "changeSkin" decision
were based on specific user identities or authorization.
Such information is not available in an "AccessRule" as
authentication is performed after traversal (while "AccessRules"
are executed during traversal).

Yes -- for a post-authentication hook.

But, as explained, it will not help for your current problem.

Of course, you would need to "traverse" to the object which defines
