Actually, we did it intentionally, because mixing dashing lifeline with dotted lifeline (when ...) make it difficult to read.

It's something we could change, or at least put some option to allow you do the mixing

Yes, please, allowing mixing would be fine. Thank you!

Could you tell which skin parameter that would be that would allow mixing, so I'd include it in advance?

Actually, it already exists!
You can use:
skinparam lifelineStrategy nosolid
