NAK. See below why.

_UID by specification is a type of _string_. Yet, that string may represent an
integer number. Now, how many variants of the strings can you imagine that may
be interpreted as integer 1? I can tell about dozens.

With your change you restricted the all possible spectre of the 1
representations to a single one. Have you checked ALL of the DSDTs
for these platforms to say 'hey, all current tables uses "1" and
this is not an issue'? Further question, will you guarantee that new
platforms on this chip won't use something different? (Not that big
issue, but will require to actively revert your change in the future).
