The difference is in effort. :-) If we keep layers around, there is no need to 
changed any browser directive, but if we keep skin around, then we have to 
change eventually all browser:* directives "layer" attribute to "skin".

Also, you called the new interface "ISkinLayerType". Layer is the more general 
term, so you really proposed to keep layers around as well. :-)

Personally I like layers better anyways, since it makes conceptually more 
sense to me. Also translating skin always provided troubles.

As to Martijn's comments, I think that the term "skin" can still be around, 
like the term "view" does, but it should be a conceptual term, not an 
implemented one.
