It is actualy documented, at least I think I got my information from
there. ;)

'dch -i' increases the version of the package, which is not appropriate if
the changelog already contains an UNRELEASED tag. Some maintainers
provided  such a tag immediately after the release, so that the
translators do not junk their logs. In general: if you see an 'unstable'
in the top ne, do a dch -i and change the top line to 'UNRELEASED'. If
there is an 'UNRELEASED', put your changes below it.

So, in short: you have understood it right, except for the last paragraph
with choose-mirror -- you should have changed 'unstable' to 'UNRELEASED'.
