yes pki is widely accepted in many application where SKIP is not always possible to identify a client for example.
PKI has a better structure for maintaining your certificates.

Some bedtime reading:

Not so many people use SKIP any more - most mass-produced commercial devices will not support this, and it's only the advanced enterprise VPN devices like Check Point and PIX that offer this feature.
So, although SKIP is faster, IKE is predominant in the market as has multi-vendor support.
