Your tutorial looks great Damion! Thank you for sharing. I am not sure about the vocabulary you are trying to estabilish though (update vs revision). I understand what you mean but I would just stick with 'If the tool changed behavior you have to bump the version.' No need to specifically name the steps as it can cause confusion (revision has a different meaning in version control world).
The side fact is, that even if you do not raise the version of the tool while uploading, the Tool Shed will try to detect whether there were any behavior-altering changes. In case there were it will generate new 'installable revision' (not an update to the latest one). Planemo is a nice tool for tooldev purposes and I am glad you found it. Other good resources for tooldevs are the IUC and devteam tool repositories: https://github.com/galaxyproject/tools-iuc https://github.com/galaxyproject/tools-devteam that are full of high quality tools. Also developing tools openly in a GitHub repo is a recommended way and deeper integration with Tool Shed is a feature to come.
