It should work, but has few problems:
  * You will loose the history of the page
  * The page edit-log will show wrong date
  * The wiki edit-log will show wrong date
  * If you use Lupy indexed search, the index will not be updated with 
the new text in the page
  * Any feature that triggered by the wiki edit log date might break

The best way would be to run a python script that save a new page 
revision in a correct way. It can save without backups if needed.

Use this as example:

It append text to the page. You can easily change it to replace the 
text. I think you can control the backups feature with an argument to 
the PageEditor constructor.

If you create a working script, please put it on ScriptMarket.
