any downside to this? If it just added option to GUI I would be happy, but with removing a lot of numbers and replace it with 11, I'm a bit sceptical

Each number is a mode.
Since 9.0 on most builds: mode 11 (lte/4g only) is forced hidden even is selected.
Switching to blank or -1 value, will make systemUI show you all modes available for your device:
Which is great but could be a downside.

    Can confirm that this actually works on P20 Lite with EMUI 9.1
