There are still many mining/harvest nodes around the world that I encountered and that would not let you gather them. Reporting them all would be equivalent to a paid job and something that some sort of QA should take care of.

Combined with the issue of mobs not being skinnable on slopes, a solution to BOTH could be to slightly increase the area where you can skin/loot/harvest/mine etc.

I did notice at some point that it happens frequently that you want to skin a mob and need several attempts before you find a position where the game lets you - even when you stand right on top of the mob. Because of that, increasing the radius in which you can interact with loot/mobs/nodes slightly seems to be a viable solution.
