For this kind of boilerplate rules, the most sensible solution is to use some
sort of semi-automated method of generating the rulesets, using m4 or cpp or
perl or shell functions or whatever you are comfortable with.  This can just as
easily handle absolute skipto as relative skipto, and doesn't open up the 
other problems that a relative skipto can cause.
