I think that's a pretty typical process, Marty. Nothing wrong with it at all (because it works).

I might be completely off base, and this may not be the best way to do this, but the method I've been using is to make an entry in my hosts file (on my development system) for a URL ending in ".dev" instead of ".com" for sites I'm working on - ie, http://example.dev if the real site is example.com.  Then, I create a virtual domain in Apache to map example.dev to the directory I'm using, and restart Apache.  It may not be the least amount of maintenance, but it takes me almost no time to set it up using cut and paste from a previous entry, and it give me a good simulation of the final site, with the only difference being I use ".dev" instead of ".com".  The standard Wordpress .htaccess file works with this setup.

If this is a dumb way to do it, I'm open to change, and I apologize.  But if it's not obvious, and is something that anyone is interested in, I could post details of the setup.  I use Ubuntu Linux for both my server and my dev system, fwiw.
