Bollocks... If there is any more xtalk, it's a couple hundredths of a db. If this was a real problem, Bell wouldn't have done lacing, etc. for the past hundred years with no problems.
If it were a problem then just use the unofficialy named CAT7 cable.
5 sheilds, 1 around each of the 4 pairs, and 1 over all 4 pairs, plus a proper STP RJ45 end not the normal UTP RJ45 that you normally see.
then with the shields grounded theres no chance of xtalk between cables.
However I'll say this phone lines 100 years ago were less likely to have issue with xtalk than gig or 10g over copper
