This is true, but there are only so many skills to invest in, especially if you have a reasonably focused build. On a T3+ skill, once you've invested your second rank, the third rank gives you 6 while every rank after 5 gives you 4. Needless to say, you aren't going to be able to spend enough points to go from Commander to Captain only putting 2 levels in each skill, and you don't need points in every Commander skill anyway. Still, if you can't find enough skill points to improve every skill you want at a tier, it's good to remember that level 5 is a decent stopping point (if only two-thirds as effective as maxing the skill).
