Sure, but if you have a problem with storage or capacity to mix it might be better for you. It depends on your priorities.
At 1+3 that litre of stock will develop 16 films. That's about US$0.6 a roll in developer per film. If you can afford film, you can probably afford that. It probably indicates that Xtol, if you use all 5L from a batch, is extremely economical, rather than that this is expensive.
