I'm not going to say much more in this because I think I've said all I can without repeating myself too much. I'll stick to pointing out where I think I've been misunderstood.

No. I'm saying that if I am entangled merely through a narrative event – no game mechanics involved then I can untangle myself through purely narrative means. The success of the entanglement and disentanglement may be dependent on successful actions within a contest but the entanglement and disentanglement do not involve changes to game mechanical concepts such as skill ratings.
