I don't know about skills degrading, but I have an idea for removing levels.
Set the experience gain different.  For example, every 100 xp gained grants
one practice.  This would make it similar to the tabletop RPGs that use
to buy their skills and abilities instead of levels.

*nods* That is why i've made almost no comments...i'm out of practice
and I realize that I need to re-read my C books before i'm even qualified to
coding questions.
