Note: the Skill Focus feats increase this maximum by 3 additional points.
This is not actually the case. Skill Focus is part of the skill modifier (adjusted), not the ranks (base). To illustrate, if you have 7 points invested in Tumble, adding Skill Focus (Tumble) will not net you +1 Dodge AC. I admit the way it's described on the page is quite confusing.
