As far as I know, this is the way Apple thinks it should be, since  
System Preferences requires you to use a modifier key when you assign  
custom shortcuts.  If you look at the menus of any application, all  
shortcuts have a modifier.  For PDF viewing applications, the arrow  
keys are already used for other things by the scroll view.  Using  
plain letter keys would be fairly un-Mac-like (although I can offer  
suggestions if you want to modify Skim's source code for your personal  
use :).
