Subject: [CR]seat post bolt question

Ok, I know I'm might be committing some kind of serious blasphemy here in asking this, so please forgive me in advance. My boyfriend's Waterford uses a 27.4 post and most of the modern options just didn't float his boat. The boating floating post was a Campy 27.4 post which a list member (thanks, Tom!) was kind enough to sell me. It uses a single bolt for the seat clamp, looks great, is the right length and he likes it a lot. So I'm feeling I gave him a nice present.

Only problem, and this is where the blasphemy part comes in, is the bolt that tightens the seat clamp is a 13mm hex head, not a bolt adjustable with an allen key. He'd like it to be an allen bolt, is there anything about that bolt (strange size and/or threading) that means he cannot use another fastener in it's place? I

Me - well I'd carry a 13mm wrench, and not worry about it, but then again he wouldn't ride something non indexing, so there you have it!
