I actually think you set it up perfectly, because it follows the 4 albums then a live album pattern to signal a change in style. The only problem is that RUSH sometimes evolved within an era. For example, most of Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures is not really very prog because of songs like Entre Nous, Freewill, The Spirit Of Radio, Tom Sawyer, Vital Signs, Limelight and Witch Hunt. So the way I listed the eras in my top 5 reflected more of the fact that I dislike progressive rock as a genre than my personal like or dislike for certain albums that deviated from the era theme. In actuality I like Moving Pictures & Permanent Waves a lot (although not more than the synth era albums) and certainly more than I like Presto, Counterparts, Clockwork Angels, Feedback or Vapor Trails, but having them lumped in with prog-rock means that they are given a little less weight in the rankings. But none of this matters, since it is a fun exercise to think of the eras as you had defined them and consider how we feel about them under these thematic umbrellas.
