Usually the code goes like "if there is a changelist, act on the node only
when it is part of the changelist." ...well, it's just what I remember
faintly, admittedly. Is that true?
If it isn't, there's nothing wrong with your command at all. In fact that
would be quite nice.
But from the ignore-on-commit perspective, you still need to remember to
supply it at commit time.
You'd need to make the changelist always secretly self-acting, and thus the
changelist must have a special name, as Hyrum kindly pointed out :)
If I can instead create a simple property to achieve the same, I'm happier.
And your command example doesn't give you the ability to propagate it
globally without even coding a single additional line of code. (none except
warning messages we may want to introduce.)
