1st: Saying there is no skill is a bit exagerated . Eg: i once killed two hordies in WoW who both were a lvl higher than me and one of them had the same class as me. If there was no such thing as skills (or lack thereof , as i suck at pvp in wow) i wouldnt have been able to kill two guys a lvl higher than me attacking me together. And it wasn't a twink either. (it was 1st char) .
But i must agree skills sometimes lack and often in PvE , simply because the encounters are static . A form of skill is being able to adapt to the situation and in PvE its always the same . Boss X won't suddenly use an ability he never used because he felt like it . And even in PvE there is a bit of skill required. (a little bit but still something) . I can tell that because i have been in raids which failed mind boggling hard while we outgeared the raid by far .
2nd: End Of Nations. I think that if any MMO might give an opportunity to make skills important it must be that one for the simple reason it's going to be an MMORTS and from personal experience the most skill intensive games are often RTS's .
So personally i think expecting an MMORPG to be skill intensive is a dream , the genre just doesn't allow that much skill to be involved.
