Should Skirt and Brim controls be merged?

Since you can set a gap distance from the part to the brim,  it seems like skirt controls could just be eliminated.  This would streamline the settings some, and I would assume it would clean up the code as well?  Is there any reason to keep skirt?

    It's just that most discussion about things like this happens on the github issue tracker (since that is where most developers / contributors of Cura are active)

    I like having them separate.  It's like a sub-profile.  If I just need to get the flow going I select skirt.  If I need better adhesion for small parts I pick brim.  Either way, the rest of the settings for each are already filled in.  With separate models, using Brim Distance as a per model setting works well.  Up tight on small stuff, and leave a gap so I don't have to remove the brim from larger stuff.
