According to tagwatch there are 133 alpine huts mapped already in
Switzerland, so you certainly should verify the import manually. If
you could make the converted osm file available somewhere, local 
mappers could help adding the missing data.

In any case, I forwarded this to talk-ch.

I dare say that most of the ele tags in Switzerland are taken from
the hiking posts at the moment, so I'd keep the CH1903 data for
consistency. Maybe we should add a note in the wiki somewhere?
