I guess that this answers my question. Before marking this as an answer - could you still see my update in the question?

comment Express an ability not to do something
It does not matter here. It can be any verb. The question's origin lies in Russian language semantics, where you can say (translated word-by-word) "I can not dig" and "I not can dig". The meaning changes slightly - either I cannot dig completely or I have the ability not to dig. So consider that I want to say "not dig" (or "not run", "not swim", "not work" - any verb suits my needs). As an example - "I can dig and not dig" (meaning that I can do both). And the only correct way to say that is "I can dig as well as I am able not to dig", which sounds... bad :)
