In Zope3 there's indeed no such thing as a "skin". A "skins" is just a 
layer with "Skin" in the classname, merely (I guess) indicating that 
this layer -being just an marker interface- can be provided by the 
request object. They're usually an aggregation of multiple layers (by 
multiple inheritance) too.
