If you read my proposal carefully, you'll see that I never proposed to
change any ZCML directive parameter.

No I didn't. I don't follow your thinking here. I proposed to
consolidate the concepts into one. Whether we call that "layer" or "skin
layer", I don't really care. I guess you propose to call it "layer"
whereas "skin" would be a conceptual term based on layers (like view is
a conceptual term based on adapters).

I'm not really choosing one over the other conceptually, maybe only from
a nomenclature point of view.
