Not possible, you must workaround with the props that are set by the app.
That's weird, check if you're using the latest skype for linux, which
I remember previous versions not setting windows roles accordingly.
Anyway here are my xprop output on each skype window:
WM_WINDOW_ROLE = "MainWindow"
WM_WINDOW_ROLE = "CallWindowForm"

Not that I know of. The app must have this feature (like terminals), which
they normally don't have.
