Looks like I was using SiteFooter in the same way you have used 
PageFooter; I'd added the additional {$SkinName}- to make sure that the 
skin works out-of-the-box, and doesn't conflict with the content of 
other skin footers.

I searched PmWiki and also couldn't find a 'standard' for skins. I'm 
fine with PageFooter / Header (although I'll have to update my skins for 
that), but I'll continue to include the {$SkinName}- option as well.

I'll be working on skins over the weekend, so if I'll try to make some 
time to draft out a standards proposal for skin section and stylesheet 
naming conventions, which will include some standards around blogging. 
That'll help standardize blog based skins making it easier to switch 
between skins.
