It could. Back when vacuum advance units were hard to come by, a 
common solution to a bad vacuum advance servo was to tune the engine 
at higher revs, utilizing the mechanical advance in the distributor 
as the means of ignition compensation. It worked OK, but the vacuum 
advance in combination works better
