No, it is definitely NOT a good solution!
The Yalp Store allows for non-free software to be installed on the device.
Indeed, the fact that Yalp is available on F-Droid is one of the reasons
we are currently evaluating to possibly stop shipping F-Droid in
Replicant images .
This is because, even if Yalp is free software in itself, its primary
use case is to install proprietary software. This makes its inclusion in
F-Droid problematic for Replicant, which aims to fully comply to the GNU
Free Software Distribution Guidelines .

Indeed, suggesting it in the official documentation would be against
Replicant's sake of being FSDG-compliant.
