That would be a reasonable explanation for Num 34:2-12, and also looks like
a very good explanation of Lev 14. But it is a little confusing why the
writer of Num 34 would use one document for the southern, western, and
eastern border, but embed a separate document for the northern border in
vv. 7-9.
