You're also assuming you can neglect the amount of data which are
_rewritten_ during garbage collection. 

That's probably a reasonable assumption in this case given the usage
pattern, and given that the flash isn't likely to be near full to
capacit.

But for the benefit of the peanut gallery I should point out that if
you're looking to do similar calculations for a file system with more
normal usage patterns and which is run closer to its full storage
capacity, garbage collection becomes much more relevant.
