Of course.  And I don't think it's an abuse.
You can also do:

    cp file file.bak
    ...edit file...
    commit the file with VC
    cp file.bak file

which is basically doing the same but using `cp` instead of `git stash`.

The commit is not linked to the stash, so you can commit anything
you like by adding/'removing the corresponding changes any way you
like, yes [ tho if you make those changes outside of Emacs, you'll
lose karma points, obviously.  ]
