Unless there's an instance where bad ukemi caused a bad technique? Otherwise I still think ukes can't be wrong.

IMO, Ukes should polish their ukemi like hell before their techniques, because everybody's ukemi is their own responsibility.
When does the attack end and the ukemi start?

If uke attacks with a perfect shomen, but freezes (or goes limp) when it "misses", what should you do? Probably not what Sensei showed you, unless his uke did that too.

Maybe my use of the term ukemi is too broad? Perhaps uke-waza is what I should have said?
