this calendar chaining feature sounds like a very specific usecase to
me, not something to support on the control level. But I am sure you
have good reason to do this.

I think you forgot to attach the screenshot, or the list has removed it...

Without going into the details of your question, let me just say this:
it does not seem to be a problem to access a control from within the
skin class: it is passed to the skin constructor and the skin has to
provide it via getSkinnable anyway. So, a calendar skin could access the
calendar control. Styling is another story though.
