I would be kind of okay with this. I guess. Suppose they can do that and keep it vague. So that it may be revealed later that they were indeed involved, or not.
Ideally, I'd like it if they had a past together, but I'd give that up to give Sam and Sharon their due.
But then, why use Natasha at all? If she just knows about Bucky's past, that role can be filled by Nick Fury, Maria Hill or Sharon.
