IMHO Skype on WP7 may happen, but won't be done in a way that'll piss of the mobile operators. Without the operators MS wouldn't be able to sell any phones at all, and Nokia is known for working with, rather than against, operators.
If it was about a mobile VOIP play they could have just bought one of the smaller specialists for much, much less. WP7 has hardly any market share, and adding Skype wouldn't change that.
