I'm the same way. My suggestion was merely a compromise to make the necessary
ZCML not double or triple in length after in this proposal. The good news is
that the 'complicated' way of first making the interface a skin and then
registering it under the skin name will still work. It's just longer (and, as
a side effect, registers the interface twice, once under its dotted name and
once under its skin name).

I updated the proposal (http://dev.zope.org/Zope3/SimplifySkinning) to mention
the shortcut.

Given that there don't seem to be other objections, I will start implementing
the proposal this weekend. Thanks for all your input!
