Spot on, CC!

Also many calls beginning with, "XX Centre, XYZ, IFR Taxi".
You have a flight plan in. No need to notify. The only time notification is mentioned in AIP is for a position report.
No need to say request traffic and code. They are going to give it to you when you mention IFR and taxiing in your call. Try it and see. Works for VFR as well. You call ACD and mention a class C aerodrome destination, the controller doesn't need to be reminded to give you a code...

Departure reports also do not need a heads up. There is a ten minute sartime in place from your taxi call. They are expecting you to contact them.

'Spose people think it sounds cool. Bit like "with you"...
