Question Aspects of Jack-O-Trades skill use

Jack of all Trades is a nebulous skill, and deserves further analysis. I have decided that any character who takes JOT skill must declare a specialization upon receipt. This is presented as an aid in role play, not necessarily the only interpretation.

= boost levels in skill you have lev 3 = SKILL MASTERY
We have all met that person who seems to be the specialist. Whatever system he controls, he is aware of the obscure details. Shortcuts, vulnerabilities, advantages.
JOT skill level = research/educ bonus

= free retry after task fail lev 3 = RESOURCEFUL
He can look at the pieces left over after a failed project and suggest alternatives. His insight can restore a critical project to active status by providing valuable forensic evidence.
JOT skill level = interrogation/educ bonus

= eliminate no expertise penalty lev 3 = RENAISSANCE MAN
Certainly not an expert, but seems to know the basics of a wide variety of tasks. He is a utility infielder, ready to provide emergency support or a stable long term backup worker.
JOT skill level = brownie point
Have faith. Have multiple plans, work on one element of a plan every day. Pass your knowledge on to others.
