If you think about it a little, attributes are just bundles of skills that use a similar physical quality. They are a convenience for minimizing the number of stats you need to describe a character. Splitting out the attributes into a multitude of skills gives you more flexibility in building your character, but at a cost in added complexity. Skill trees are an alternative approach, but really they serve a similar purpose as abilities.
