You have to skin the file you're referencing, not the reference itself. You can skin the reference, but if you don't save it out, then it will still be referencing the non-skinned head.

l know we can that about refenrencing Dc but what l m talking about isl skin reference and l can work on my texture file or uv and work on bllendshapes add some and delete some than like that l never touch my one with skeleton and like that l will never get some input l dont want and **** something on my squeeton because l delete some input and add some.
skinning ref give me opprtunity to delete hystory and keep a my mesh clean with no input l dont want bcause he is skin.
L hope lm clear

whaht you are talking about is more like a script that you would make to setup your charachter.... could be as simple as copying your scrpt editor as you work..... but the "setup script" would allow you to do modeling changes... texture changes... joint repositions... etc... the script is just a way to "redo" the setup after you chaged what you wnated to....

as for referencing the skin into the skeleton file it just wont work... the skinCluster node keeps track of the vertex array numbers.... and there wieghting to your joints..... wha tthat means is any operation you do to change the vertex order or count will destroy All your weighting..... :( so i would stay away from referenceing the skin....
