Overtaking vs. Crossing

Wouldn't that issue be defined by which sector the Laser was in...if in the forward 225 degree sector (forward to two points abath the beam on either side), it would be crossing. If in the aft 135 degree sector of your boat, he would be overtaking. If the Laser was near the limits of the 135 degree sector, he could still have a converging course that would intercept your boat on a collision course while he would still be the overtaking vessel. Is this not so?
