False sense?

I have a question to the group that I have been pondering for awhile and I would like to hear some feedback from the rest. My question is….can too much cooperation give us a false sense of doing a technique correctly?. Reason I say this is that I am seeing more and more ukes, tanking for nage before the technique is applied. We all have a sense of what will happen (depending on practice experience, etc), but are some aikidoka anticipating too much? Has anyone else experienced this before?
