I've checked those ones you noted, even snippet.el . They all are not so 
powerful and user-friendly as yasnippet. And they are all not manage 
keybindings. And probably not support expansion depending on context in simple 
way. And docs are really stingy. And snippet language is not so powerful and 
readable, as in yasnippet.

But you are right - skeleton is totally enough for most modes.

And about snippet.el. I still think, that Yasnippet is better general solution 
for snippets for Emacs. It has the biggest user community, and lots of ready 
snippets on github, which can be installed easily. Yasnippet will be better 
concurrent for snippet systems in other editors and IDEs.
