For what its worth, I'm +1 with Serhiy that we raise an exception 
on a non-string argument, including the case where the caller forgets to 
provide a reason at all.

I don't think that @skip with no reason was ever intended to work (it 
certainly wasn't documented as working) and as this only effects tests, 
not production code, I don't think we ought to be constrained by "bug 
compatibility" concerns. Fixing broken tests is easier than fixing 
broken production code.
