Skeleton king is rumored being half act1 or even like blood raven. Although I am not quite sure... You could kill blood raven lvl 5-6 back in D2 but had to wait a solid lvl 16 to defeat andariel. In the beta you can get to the skeleton king lvl 8-9 and defeat him. So it does make sense to me there is something after plus there is a locked door outside so it is clear the skeleton king isn't the final boss of Act 1!
Also, there should be an inferno mode. So normal, nightmare, hell plus inferno which is... really really hard!
If I had to make a claim, I would say skeleton king represent the third of act1. I can easily imagine 8-9 king, 11-12 ??? and 13-14 act1 boss. End of normal brings you near lvl 30 (that's what blizzard said). So it does make sense as it gets longer and harder to reach higher levels! Plus level 13 is available on beta so it kind of make sense they test how strong we can be vs act 1 mobs...
