Just out of curiousity, why do you want seperate racks for each size?  Are
they being stored in different ways or have different behavioral
requirements (e.g. different classes) apart from their size?  If not, there
is probably no reason to have multiple racks.

SkinScript doesn't do anything to tie racks together or to a Specialist -
it's just a way of describing where the data comes from/goes to for a
particular Rack.

Several in the same, if they are providing objects which fill the same role
in your overall application.

Just use the name of the rack, e.g.:

<dtml-let ni="rackOne.newItem(">, etc.

Racks are subobjects of their specialists.
