Makes sense to me. One would be using tai sabaki to enter.
but,...then would not tai sabaki be the basic technique...?

Would the gyaku version be the one where you move in front of the uke at the end instead of them moving around you? Sometimes it looks like you are putting their lead arm around them like a scarf. Does that make sense?
The image I posted shows something like that only do you use the other (free) arm to irimi. But yes I think it is something like that....

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
