It's not really that I object to browser:skin specifically, it's just 
that when one thing can be expressed in terms of another and reused as a 
single entity it would seem to be a good idea to do so.  After all when 
coding we write new functions using existing functions and language 
atoms.  But what I'm envisioning is probably too far-reaching to fit 
into this discussion so I'll refrain from that line of discussion.

One downside to the expanded interface directive is that it hides the 
fact that a utility is also being created.  I actually prefer the 
browser:skin version because it totally hides the underlying "atomic" 
operations, but the <interface>-also-registers-a-utility version 
conflates two atomic operations.
