One can always create an RWD skin and upload it to the cookbook for testing
An incrementation of the default skin is possible but if I recall correctly,
one of the reasons for the simplicity of the "default" skin is to allow non-
HTML-CSS3-JS-expert wiki owners to easily modify the skin to suit them. And

I don't say that we will not do it, we just need to evaluate the benefits.
And by "default" skin I assume the one shipped with the PmWiki core
distribution, not necessarily the one which is used on pmwiki.org, which may
be modified if we decide we need it. (Even if it is practical to have the
same skin on PmWiki.org and in the default installation.)
