I haven't seen that particular group of abilities be very popular/useful and we have actually been considering dropping them from the list. Personally, I'd raise something to 2d6 before I bumped an action skill to 1d8 - once per turn. I just don't think Followers roll enough dice to get much out of those abilities. Allies? Maybe.
I'm glad you brought these three up. I'm guessing you'd like to see them remain on the list?
