No, it does not need to be a skill, as I recall. A quick drawn weapon (trivial) can be combined.

There are not many (any) trivial SKILL actions. This is a sore spot for some of us...

There are quite a few Talents classed as Trivial Skill Actions. No actual skills though.

Why change. I can't see how it adds to the game.

Stand up and attack - add two to speed and can draw free attack.
Move two and attack - already there
Move pace (with quickness) and attack, maybe a slight problem but will drat free strikes
Draw weapon and attack - can't see an issue.

Can't think of other examples but I am sure there are sum

Does any spells have speed 2? That may be an issue

Actually there are quite a few Skill Actions that are either Trivial or Simple (Combined with another Action) or performed as part of another action (usually movement):

Acroatics: Reduce Falling Damage, Tumbling
Appraise: Barter
Athletics: Jumping, Swimming
Battle: Spot Ambush
Beast Lore: Heal Animal, Ride Animal
Deceit: Tell a Lie, Recall Lie
Empathy: Read Someone
Etiquette: Know Place, Heraldry
Knowledge: Assess Threat, Recall Facts
Larceny: Sleight of Hand, Pick Pockets
Linguistics: Understand Familiar
Mettle: Perserverance
Perception: Spot, Something out of Place
Ride: Drive, Ride, Fast Mount/Dismount
Stealth: Hide Small Objects

While all Simple Actions are 2 ticks, not all 2 tick actions are called Simple

Correct, but if it's listed as "Simple" it can be combined. All the checks listed above are labeled as Trivial or Simple (or no action required)
