Yes, ReplayGain can be used in the way you mentioned. If that's what you wish to do, which is encode a track that's not identical to the original, since as you said, the amplitude is changed, the content itself changes. But usually, this isn't ReplayGain's purpose. ReplayGain is usually used to control the volume level of the track during playback. A benefit of this is that the content that you encode is similar to the original, yet the level can be controled in two ways, using album gain or track gain. When encoding the way you mentioned, you don't get the benefit of being able to choose between the two methods.
I hope this helps .
