That doesn't change the fact that the member is demanding that the question be divided. 

The properly asserted demand of a single member that a question be divided unquestionably results in the division of the question.  It is not, however, a motion for the Division of a Question, since it shares virtually none of the standard descriptive characteristics of the latter, except perhaps that it is not debatable, and cannot be reconsidered.

it is absurd to divide the distinct elements of a series by themselves.

I disagree. It is perfectly appropriate per RONR to divide the different parts (or elements) of a series of amendments in the circumstances described by Ms. Harlos and as addressed by RONR.

You cannot divide the World Series into its distinct games, because it is already divided by its very nature as a series.

That is not analogous to the parliamentary issue we are discussing.
