Yes and I am using that presumption in my costing system for practices too.Agreed. Up until NOW I hadn't seen something that grabbed me and said "This is better than the RC edit of 4e SCs", but I think I have to definitely rethink that now. Luckily I could change over to a system like the one in the PDF without it really mucking up the game too much. SCs are a vital part of HoML, but the exact internals aren't SUPER critical as long as they're based on discrete task resolution, which this system is. My "practices act as a license to pay for auto-success" actually works REALLY WELL with this writeup, I think.
