Gerry, correct on both counts. But it is a matter of degrees.

You are just trying to shift the glue up a bit more in your favor. Slightly diluted, lightly wetted. Glueing wets the joint anyway. We’re talking a small percentage more wet. That’s all.

Experimentation on scrap wood is totally acceptable also. I usually mock up my joints with scrap as I setup my tools. That same scrap can test your glue’s tack time.
