Sure, but in at least one campaign I have had my PCs realize that the
way to increase Knowledge is to use (cast) it.  It made for a nice
bonus here and there along the way for other spells, but it really
their Knowledge el, which of course, made it all the more effective to
and increased the frequency it could be used.  I don't consider it a
but it can certainly have an impact, particularly if you consider the
of an item which casts the spell every x days...the PCs will constantly
"training" points even on the road, and if they do actually train they
gain even more for their training time.
