Default T5 Question/Observation

I've been writing a couple of T5 task examples lately, and having not played T5, it has dawned on me through writing the examples that the This Is Hard Rule will kick in A LOT during a game.

This Is Hard says to add 1D to your task throw if the character's skill is not equal to or greater than the task's difficulty die code. For example, a character with Skill-2 will suffer the TIH penalty on Difficulty 3D tasks or harder ones.

So, my next thought would be: What kind of skill levels is a character likely to have when the character is fresh from character generation?

Isn't it a bunch of Skill-1 and Skill-2, with a few higher level skills mixed in?

If it is, then this means the TIH rule kicks in a great proportion of the time.

Let's hear from some people who've been playing T5. What has your experience with this been?
