That's really strange. I don't have any words of wisdom other than to suggest contacting Skype tech support. I've had Skype on my RT 8.0 for almost as long as I've had the device (and I'm not upgrading to 8.1 for the same reason as you, no jailbreak). I don't use it that much, but it still works (just tried it). My point is, Skype for RT 8.0 at least used to be available, so that's really strange if the store is now requiring 8.1 to install. To me that sounds fishy which is why I'd say take it up with their tech support... there is no reason you should have to upgrade just to install that application.
