Sanding orange peelin clear before final clear coats

I know this topic has been beat to death but Im wondering if I can get away with shooting my last two clear coats without completely eliminating all orange peel..
Ive done so with a test panel and it seemed to be work out well. Im thinking since I plan on cutting and buffing my last coat anyways it shouldnt be a problem but Im wondering if shooting clear over these tiny unsanded areas in the clearcoat would cause any adhesion problems in the future?
Im just afraid to cut through the clear since I didnt quite get the first coat of clear over the basecoat as thick as I wanted. This is why Im hesitant to sand anymore

I'd use a gray scuff pad and hit the little bits of trash with 600 by hand just enough to knock the sharp peaks down some,dewax , then two coats of clear

I have scuffed down with 600 but havent completely flattened the orange peel as you can see in the picture. Im sure my 2 coats of clear will fill them but was wondering if it would cause any adhesion problems with my last two coats?

If you don't have any sand throughs where the clear is gone and you see basecoat, I'd go for it.
