Might these changes show up in D&D in the oft rumored 4th edition?

I don't know if this will be incorporated into D&D 4th edition, but the changes sound like they might indeed serve to streamline the process of PC/NPC generation, and may serve to increase the effectiveness of the characters in using those skills.

This might be better than using the skill groups from Iron Heroes. Certainly it's less paperwork and calculation. While you will lose a bit of individuality (some people only having a smattering of a skill, while others are highly skilled), the ease of use and simplicity in generating characters may be more than worth it.

My current solution to the perceived problem of too few skill points was to add more skill points to all characters (+8 at 1st level, +2 per level therafter), and remove cross-class skill limitations and costs. While it does allow players to gain needed skills, it still leads to point tracking and paperwork.

Neat stuff there!

I think it might be SW specific, i really think it is designed to try to draw in old WEGd6 people, by making it less "d20" specific, as well as making it closer to d20 Modern.
