Arrgh, 15 minute time out. I meant to finish this way...

Now seriously, when uke commits to attack it has already blended with nage whether it likes it or not. Uke may lose balance (kuzushi) and thus can be lead to wherever nage wants, however uke should never lose all sense of distance and direction (this can be bad for both), therefore, an experienced uke could sense a flaw in nage's movement and adjust ukemi properly, for the safety of both.
