The conclusion above seems to be that having a yellow+1 in a deck is essentially the same as having a red in a deck.

I agree that a yellow +1 is not a disaster, but one thing that I don't think has been considered in the above analysis is as follows:

If the deck contained a yellow +1 versus a red, then the user will have two draws to find a green when a yellow+1 is drawn versus the only one chance when a red is drawn, so the chances of making progress are twice as high with a yellow+1 as with a red. As a result, I would say that yellow+1 cards do, in fact, make it easier for the person who's playing. A lockee will typically find all the green cards twice as fast in a deck that contains 5 green and 20 yellow+1 cards instead of 5 green and 20 red cards.
