This still leaves open the potential for abuse.  For example, assume I get
skill1 at level 1, skill2 at level 2, etc.  I am level 5, and I work my way
up to 10.  At each level from 6-10, I use all my practices on skills 1-5.
Then I am demoted back to 5.  Now, I am way better at skills 1-5 than I
should be.  I suppose this could be handled by randomly reducing the
player's remaining skills, but some accounting would be needed for players
who have practiced skills 6-10.  Only if you want to be fair, I suppose.
