Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As it is not, how could the UK disclaim N.I. for the purpose of assigning its severability from UK's withdrawal action without agreement of the EU?

It couldn't. But my reading of their respective positions is that the EU would be only too happy to retain N. Ireland within the CU and Single Market if that were to secure the Republic's agreement to a deal and obviate the obvious problems a customs border along the 500KM land border would otherwise create for all.
