We use slight variations of these instead - "Hold me here while I set up the anchors","I am in direct to the anchors, give me some slack but keep me on belay","I am in direct to the anchors, take me off belay, I am going to rap",Before removing oneself from the anchor, "Am I on belay?"
Way too much on a crowded, noisy, or windy day IMO. Work out the plan before leaving the ground.

TC and i were pretty basic-I'm on belay until i yell "OFF"same with rappels
... (struggling to do so since the rope was loaded ) ...
