Let me state again, that if it works for you it is fine, but I still insist that you are not performing an incremental backup.
"...An incremental backup is one that provides a backup of files that have changed or are new since the last incremental backup; it is one that backs up only the data that changed since the last backup — be it a full or incremental backup..."
The rsync command you have stated, does a full copy of the /home directory, it does not copy only changes files since the last backup. Hence, it is not an incremental backup, rather a full backup of the /home directory.
But, lets leave it at this. You are obviously happy with your backup scheme, so there is no point in this conversation.
