There is no problem if a selected compact set of markups is included as 
a first section.

If I'm a webmaster I'd like to see that the skin is broken before 
downloading it.

They should be installed (when I find the free time to review them), 
unless if I notice some security issues, or blatant spam, or something 
else that should not be in a recipe.

When we split the Cookbook group to the Skins group, people insisted 
that not only skins, but any and all recipes related to skins should be 
there, and moved these non-skin, but skin-related recipes from the 
Cookbook to Skins. Indeed, this now makes it more complex to create an 
automatic list of links. But there are several ways to do it: either add 
a negative name= parameter to the pagelist like
    (:pagelist group=Skins name=-NeitherASkin,-NorASkin:)

or, use a negative keyword inside the non-skin recipes, e.g.  (:comment 
not_a_skin:) then subtract these pages with a negative search like
    (:pagelist group=Skins -not_a_skin:)

or add the [[!Skins]] category to actual skins, and only to them, and 
   (:pagelist group=Skins link=Category.Skins:)

There may be other ways to do this.
