Padme living would have changed the OT so drastically that it would have been unrecognizable, and I would never want that. Fans, myself included, get upset at minor changes to the original trilogy. I can't imagine that there would be any support for the idea.
At best, it could be a fun "what if?" scenario, like the three Infinities comics were. But an improvement to the greater Star Wars universe? Absolutely not.
