Now I get what you were trying to do.
What I don't like is that now the patch splits the section about skipping in two separate parts, while it would be better to keep it together IMHO.
You argument about having the "theory" first and the actual API later makes sense, and it's somewhat mirrored by e.g. the "basic example" section and the detailed API about TestCase and the assert methods later.
If we keep the two parts together we are left with two options:
1) add SkipTest to the existing section as I suggested initially;
2) move the whole section down below where the API is described;

1) it's simpler and it's enough IMHO, but if 2) is better I think it would be better to move it after the "deprecated aliases" section.

Michael, do you have any preference?
