3_wirePS.bmpCan't combine circuits.

Why worry about combining circuits? just have power (A) feed switch 1 &2 for the light (black) & night-light (red) and splice the whites. do same on 2nd pair of switches with power(B) for fan and heater
That is the exercise here and my question; neutral wires are pigtailed in the switch box and in the ceiling for the fan,light and night light and are not shown for either circuit in this diagram as well as the ground wire(s).
The HEAT's 12/3 shares nothing with the other circuit except the yellow covering on the cable; the heat 's red and the neutral belong to that 'heat" circuit.
So....I am sorry I didn't return to this forum earlier. I went to city hall and nailed down one of the electrical code enforcement folk and they said I was spot on with my wiring reasoning...I am no pro...
So if were to have pigtailed ALL the neutrals, for all four devices in the switchbox and in the ceiling, would this have been KOSHER?
I know the word neutral means neutral but wouldn't that be mixing stuff across circuits?
ALL devices will have their separate switches.
