For my houserules, yeah. I killed perform as a skill and just made it a level-based check for the Bard, since no other main classes use it with class features. (See the Bardic Music class feature and the note attached.)

Though I can also see, in my houserules, mind, adding a feat that lets you add half your non-bard class level to Perform checks. This could also allow other classes to use Perform. (though I don't really see much purpose for it, since Perform doesn't really have any other uses..)

I guess I should really clean up this entry for 3.5 regular. I was really eager for any kind of commentary, and filtering out all the house rules can be kind of troublesome. (mainly because I rebuilt the skill system with a streamlined list, and lots of the invocations reference skills)
