I probably do it in my head automatically.
If it works and your players aren'y confused go for it. Though in 4e such a system seems less needed. 4e Low-Tech even gives examples of real world split TLs:

Polynesian Navigators: TL0 (Seafaring TL2)
The Walls of Jericho: TL0 (Construction and fortification TL1)
Mayans: TL(0+1) (Mathematics TL3)
African Metallurgy: TL1 (Metallurgy TL2)
Medieval Medicine: TL3 (Medicine TL1-2)
Help make a digital reference for GURPS by coming to the GURPS wiki and provide some information and links. Please, provide more then just a title and a page number.
