I would agree 99% but I still would not call someone taking ukemi instead of being punched in the nose a throw, as who exactly is throwing who? The person throwing the strike or do you throw yourself?
It happens both ways.

Sometimes the one who is about to being hit throws himself to avoid the strike, sometimes the attempt to avoid the strike is not compatible with keeping balance due to the inertia of the (usually very commited) attack.
