The changes that have occurred in my lifetime would argue that Research shifted from TL7 to TL8. However, I can't so easily map shifts from TL5 to TL6 as just one example.

Research is a very important skill but I wouldn't rate it as a skill where advancement underlies a radical shift in paradigm. It's much easier to see that in Physics and Biology. Changes in our understanding of those fields spirals outward and initiates other changes.

Engineer (Computers) might be a TL changing skill. In the information handling area I could have once made a case for Memetics/TL but that isn't a Skill any more.
