I do like this too and I rebase the resulting branches on master
(normally it's easy when the involve a single slackbuild and are made
by a single commit), it seems to me the cleaner approach.

You can merge them all in a single branch later, if needed, with "git
cherry-pick $commit", where $commit is the commit hash of the
single-commit branch.
