If you want the best possible image and have tons of time, clear skies, no bad weather and reliable gear then sure go for 1x1 and add up the signal to noise ratio.

Well, thats a bit sweeping, dunno about that.

For colour non res critical data your still better off, depending on sensor (as discussed) , and if your not using RGB to add to bin1 Lum, as in NB, and you are imaging in dark skies, even huge NB colour data is better in bin 2 unless you also have long, as in or more than 1hr subs.
