Yes it is, many people including me use similar setups, although
usually we put descriptions of individual patches at the top of the
message with the patch itself rather than to the cover letter. It is
more convenient for everyone, especially when the thread grows large
and much more convenient for people using clients like gmail which do
not thread and group messages with exactly the same subject instead.
