Just don't cause damage, and there will be no problems:)
Again, for people who treat car as a black box with steering wheel - towing is prohibited! You have to know what you are doing. And even Nissan doens't say towing is not allowed - they say if you damage it - they aren't paying. Fare.
Why I would use some regen, if being rescued - get some buffer to get up the driveway, or probably up few blocks from main road, so I could let other person go. I agree on total inefficiency of such charge - i'd estimate 30% of efficient, vs when towing in neutral (lossed on conversion, charge and discharge)
