That seems kind of pedantic, Andrew.
I have a simpler metric: is there an outside force interfering with my ability to devote my attention to a routine application of the skill check?
Am I maintaining a detect magic effect, keeping me from Taking 10 on an Identify roll?
Is there bad weather, where the unpredictable high winds are keeping me from Taking 10 on a Acrobatics check?
Are there ogre children throwing rocks down at me as I'm trying to climb out of a well?
That's clearly different -- at least, to me -- from Taking 10 on a Disable Device check to defuse a bomb.
