Essential MySQL DBA Skills

What are the skills of a MySQL DBA? Here are my 2 cents.

1. Solid understanding of database system including design and how data is processed.
2. Handy scripting language that you can use like PERL, Python, or even Shell.
3. MySQL Backup, High Availability and Performance Tuning.
4. SQL language.
