Do Marksman and Vicecanon of Venom set 5-piece bonus affect light/heavy attacks?

Sure, I could test this -- but it would be expensive if the answer is "no." Just wondering: does anybody know whether the 5-piece bonuses for the Marksman and Vicecanon of Venom sets (5% damage bonus on bow abilities) apply only to the weapon skills such as snipe, venom arrow, etc.? Or does it also apply to light/heavy attacks with bows?

If they bonuses do affect light/heavy attacks, I have an intriguing build to try out...

    If you don't get an answer on this, I'll try and test it when the servers are up...can only test Marksman though.

    Vicecanon worked with heavy attacks on pts.

    FWIW, I am now running 5-piece Marksman (bow + 4 armor) + 5-piece Hawk's Eye (3 armor + 2 rings), and the bonuses (both cost reduction and damage) stack. And it rocks.

    The only improvement I plan on making is to get a pair of Malestrom Bows and replace what is currently a random purple pendant with a Marksman one.

    Anyway, it's a really nice set-up for an all-bow build, and thus far very effective.
