FYI, I don't think those specifics are necessary or appropriate in the Change Proposal. The editors (including you now) can work out themselves how to mechanically apply the change. If doing it in two commits is the most practical way, I don't think anyone would object. But the WG only needs to judge the actual text, and we know from past experience that describing a change in two different ways in one Change Proposal can be confusing. If at all possible, let's make the CP maximally simple and clear quickly, as ISSUE-204 gates a chain of two other dependent issues.
