       Sure. I seems to me it's a question of detail, or grain.

         In basic Melee/Wizard, there is only your DX and whether you are a
Wizard or Hero(tm) to say how good you are.

         In ITL, there are talents, and for some talents there are one or more
advanced levels, or not.

         In GURPS, there are skills which you can use points sometimes in
increments about 1/40th the amount it takes to raise an attribute, which one
can look at as just a more detailed & different version of the ITL system.
GURPS also has advantages which can represent innate aptitude or special
experience, which gets thrown in as more modifiers or special effects. E.g.
Innate Musical Aptitude can raise all your effective musical skills on top of
what your skills and attributes would give you, while Combat Reflexes in
something that can be picked up from combat experience, and improves your
rolls for defenses or responding to surprise attacks. There are also some
innate ineptitude disadvantages you can take for negative cost, such as
Dyslexia, Tone Deaf, Accident Prone, Gullibility, Klutz, Innumerate or

         It seems to me these are all sort of the same basic system, with
different levels of detail.
