Will it be possible to skin the start button in the future, or is that not going to be possible in Win8.1 without Start8?

Pardon me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you even get a start menu on Windows 8.1 without Start8.

No, but you do get a start button 

 

Also, I've noticed that skins designed for XP have a pretty nasty thing going on with the back/forward buttons in Explorer.
