Yes. See /TKD /5.2: "Numbers are used as nouns. As such, they may stand 
alone as subjects or objects or they may modify another noun." But based 
on /TKD/, *wanI'vam lajQo' wa'* probably means /one (of them) won't 
accept this event/—in other words, it presupposes the listener already 
knows about a group, out of which you're singling one. It's not the same 
as *vay'* or *-lu'*.

I think *wanI'vam lajlu'Qo'* is the superior sentence, and better 
translated /this event won't be accepted./
