Yes, that would work as it would return (from the lookup) the information needed for the column.
However, it is yet another lookup. Usually not an issue. In this case, you already have all the information needed in the Gallery (the Id and the Value), so another Lookup would just be another round-trip.
But...Yes - a working option!
