Certifications are interesting because they're not skills, but rather
part of the proof of the skills. I figure they should go as a new
top-level, rather than being under Skill.
However, I get the feeling that the SkillsBase won't let you do this
in its current state. :-)

My opinion is that this would look something like:
Application Areas -> Operating Systems -> Device Drivers
My interpretation of Application Areas has been that it represents
development of that type of application. I base this interpretation
on the fact that there is already a Software hierarchy where people
have been checking off their use of various applications.
I do wonder if "Application Areas" needs clarification though.
Where kernel hacking fits in probably depends what you're hacking
in. Perhaps an equally adequate sub-skill could be created, based on
the actual code being written.
BTW, it looks like this would make you the first OS developer on the
SkillsBase (otherwise the Operating Systems skill would already exist
at this level of the hierarchy.)
