I kinda do the same with heavies except 2nd skill after BIA I go for straight up repairs, then throw some of the medium tank skills (smooth ride, snap shot) in for increased on the move accuracy. could throw some firefighting or preventative maintenance in there too if its getting set on fire a lot.
lights and td's just focus on camo, sixth sense and view range buffs (recon, situation awareness). designated target is also a useful one for lights. a lot of TD's benefit from clutch braking as well since they have crap traverse. could even use for some heavies.
of course all tanks are different and some need more specialized sets of skills, I tried to generalize it as much as possible.
