A good observation. The guys on the infantry squad or spec-ops team differentiate on their specialties (marksman, demolitions, driver, security, etc), but they all have the same core package. So the core needs to avoid including the specialty differences.

In most TV shows, the sciences and engineering tend to be all lumped together. So those are often good candidates for wildcards.

Which five (just so I have an idea of what you mean)? The unarmed skills with damage bonuses based on relative level?
