      Only if you think the heritage of Israel (Creation, Flood, Babel, Abram) is irrelevant to the "fundamental Torah", & doesn't consist of any "sedentary national life". Personally I don't think that's academically legitimate. The entrance to & exodus from Egypt follows similar settlements/journeys involving Eden's Garden, Eden itself, the place where Noah's ark settled, the place where the tower was built, & Ur. Besides, you also have both Abram & Moses going to/from Egypt before & within your main chiasmus.
