Historically, that has been an accepted strategy. A number of aircraft types in the past have been fitted with a stick-pusher, which uses AoA as an input and acts directly on primary pitch control (elevators).

However I'm not aware of any stick-pusher that acts on the input of a single sensor, with no redundancy.
