The reference to skeleton.el's commentary was introduced in bc44be50 "*
loading.texi (Autoload): Explicitly state which forms are processed
specially.", there is no additional commentary in skeleton.el regarding
autoloading in that revision either.  I think it's just intended to be
an explanation of what `define-skeleton' is.

Perhaps a better link would be `(autotype) Skeleton Language', similar
to how defclass has a link to eieio.

   You can also use a magic comment to execute a form at build time
