The RILPoint skin is mimicking the MS SharePoint skin.

Everything visible in the RILPoint skin is new from scratch. There's 
also a new rilpoint.php (because it's an essential part of the 
integration with Drupal), where all the page layout stuff essentially is 
a "merge" with/from Drupal's page layout. This was done in order to 
integrate the two.

The skins are "physically" separate though.

At last the overall look and feel is intentionally mimicking the look 
and feel of MS SharePoint (where the underlaying functionality on the 
pages are intersecting). (some compare Drupal with SharePoint although 
they're not fully comparable).

== Office feeling at work ==

The idea with this skin is to give more of an "in-house office" feeling 
(as opposed to a being _lost_out_there-feeling) when such a feeling is 
desired (mostly for such work which is traditionally done "in-house").

You get the idea. :-)
