I think anyone who achieves the level of "Master" should be able to sell anything they want to, regardless of how flashy it is or isn't.
so..., your a painter, a very good painter but..probably not the best. by what you're saying, you should be able to take all of work and be able to have a gallery take all of it on consignment regardless of what the competition has to offer.
SD placing a skin for sale indicates that that skin meets a certain, although seemingly unspecified, level of quality and excellence and has been produced by a master skinner. some make it and some don't.
As far as types of Master Skins, I would like to see more non-WindowBlinds, like IconPackages, Cursors, and DX stuff.
there is some really great stuff in these categories. but I quote from one much wiser than I:
WindowBlinds, for instance, take an INSANE amount of time to develop. Even a "simple" skin can be quite time consuming
be interesting to know why they are not, I would think it would be a business decision but...
