I did a similar thing for myself, but got confused when I tried figuring disarming attacks (and getting the weapon back if it worked), two-weapon attacks (do you count Weapon Edge twice?), etc...

Slight problem, possibly just terminology...

Not all of it, just 7 AP - you still lose 13, right? Also, as the WINNER has the choice of taking a Wound to reduce AP loss by 7 AP, whereas the LOSER always gets the Wound (but doesn't lose the AP), who is the winner & loser in a tie? Who gets the choice, if anyone? I'm not too sure a Wound is worse than 7AP loss anyway, funny rule...
