I'm sure there'll be those who call out the Mnoren on you: "Unclean!"

But I'm going to agree with you.  I'd allow this approach, but only if:

a) It happens on my watch; no characters ride into my campaign with a
stack of useful Inactive Talents.

b) The penalty is high; -3 if the totally unskilled level is -4, maybe
-2 for things they've 'kept their hand in'.

c) Using half-remembered spells is understood as an invitation for GM

d) All or nothing talents count as nothing while Inactive.  "I was quite
Fencer in my youth..."
