Yes, expand.el might be a good candidate for obsolescence.

The discussion with Joao convinced me that "extending skeleton" is not
going to work quite right (IOW, it won't "cover it nicely").  So the
idea is rather to introduce yet-another thingy, but try to make sure
that skeleton.el can be rewritten as a "compatibility front-end", and
same for tempo.el.
