crosstalk, not wire length

That's good information about transmitting signals on electrical wires, but it doesn't distinguish between parallel and serial protocols.
Crosstalk is a phenomenon on bundled wires, which exist in serial protocols too: each wire carries one serial stream. This wire configuration is common and affords faster total data transmission than parallel with the same number of wires.
Signals having to settle onto the line also happens in serial protocols as well as parallel.
Is there some way that crosstalk and settling affect skew between wires but not the basic signal rate capacity of each individual wire?
