The pros of using /extensions/SkinName are:

While this is true and somewhat handy,
there can be unexpected situations
such as two independent developers (or teams) coming up with two different
things that have...the exact same name -- this is true for "Nimbus"; there
is an extension and a skin with that name; the skin likely predates the
extension, but unlike the extension, the skin wasn't always FOSS.
We actually also have a Vector extension (thankfully discontinued now) and a Vector skin
(and both were made by the same team, too! ;) ).
