The purpose of abridging your workflow was for brevity, I didn't mean to
make it look "sloppy."  I apologize if my abridging made it look that way
(I don't think it did).

It is an acceptable usage, but you still must document it and seek
approval, and I don't think you have done that.  Further, the code of
conduct states that the geographic extent of the changesets should be
reasonable "Changes grouped into small regions are easiest to digest for
human mappers (e.g. "fixed highway tags in Orange County")."

Per county or metro area would be suitable as the code of conduct
suggests.  I suspect that many counties/metro areas would not have any
changes.  This is something that could be put forth in your proposal and
discussed with the community.
