I tend to think that Your XML + Its resulting HTML + Its secondary  
impact on .xml.meta files constitute a single, atomic change. In  
other words: edit the HTML, run the build, commit what it touches.

You mean that you don't review the HTML commits? There should not be  
any need to do so unless the build system is broken, or the XML  
change made the build fail. And in that case I assume that none of us  
would commit XML that resulted in a build failure.
