> This may be coincidence, but (assuming this is all 10.10), I find that even though I have forced all .pdf's to be opened by Skim, when I, e.g., CTRL-click on a PDF viewed in Safari, to get the drop-down menu to open the file elsewhere, it always reads "Open in Preview" even though selecting it invokes Skim.

I think this is just how the menu in Safari is coded… the wording on the menu is fixed as “Open with Preview”, but under the hood this probably calls the “open” system command, and that sends the pdf to whatever application you set as the default.
