That's a good point. In some cases, it would be obvious to the PC (the sniper and the former Ranger, for example, would know that they were relatively stealthy, and the mechanic probably realizes that she's not), but some characters might overestimate their stealthiness.

I suppose that even with guestimating, sub-groups would probably contain individuals with skill differences of only +1 or -1, which is pretty close. If one were to implement the Help rule, the difference would offset.
