The only skip shift I do regularly is 4>6 after hard acceleration onto a freeway. Skip shifting on the way down like 6>3 seems to require double-clutching (and even if it doesn't I'd do it anyway to ease the synchros) and I just don't find myself needing it that often. Plus rev-matching on this engine sounds so sweet that I take every opportunity I can get to downshift.
