0004408: Decoration reactions never result in quality decorations
Reactions that add an improvement to an object, like the one I posted at 0004378, never result in quality decorations. I've tested this in adventure mode via a knapping reactions and a knapping demigod, and in Dwarf mode via a stonecraft reaction, in both cases adding stone spikes to an object of any kind.
Add a reaction with the IMPROVEMENT tag as per the linked issue that you can easily repeat, and repeat using it.
No tags attached.

This problem appears to be because of IMPROVEMENT not respecting SKILL in any way, as per 0004577, and IMPROVEMENT also does not respect the number of reagents reserved for the IMPROVEMENT. (You only improve one item with the IMPROVEMENT token, regardless of number of reagents. Multiple IMPROVEMENTs only improve the same item multiple times.)
