In some cases, yes.  No layer tag implies layer=0.  For example (and it's
only a single example which came to mind), if there are two bridges which
cross each other, one has layer=1, and the other has no layer tag, then
adding layer=1 to one bridge will break things.

I don't think that "the same or better in most cases" is sufficient to
justify automated edits.
