Advice for Organizing Update Sets
The convention that the plugin follows is that it creates Batch Parents and Batch Children. A Batch Parent is meant to be an empty update set in the global scope. All the actual updates should be kept in the Batch Children. If there's an update to be made to the global scope, this should be captured in a Batch Child in the Global Scope.
The Batch Parent is used to group the Batch Children together in Batches, as well as linking subsequent Batches together.
