My vision for it would be to count the entire precinct for the contest that caused it to be selected, certainly not losing track of which pieces of equipment were associated with specific ballots where feasible. If only one machine is suspect in an election, it would not be a bad idea to include an additional provision for such a very limited audit recount.

The goal of the Targeted Audit Recount is to put the choice of precincts into the hands of stakeholders, who are either candidates or ballot question proponents/opponents. It also includes an optional mailing, paid for by the stakeholders, to ensure the voters exist. That requires a precinct-wide scope as the voters are not typically associated with the vote entry stations they used in the election.
