Well, you can certainly change what is reported on the 1099-DIV if you wish, but IRS's copy will not be changed, so you'll have an inconsistency. If the 1099-DIV is inaccurate, then the holder needs to go back to the originator to get it corrected.

And vague statements like "A 1099 from a broker is often insufficient..." really doesn't mean anything. If you have specific examples, show them and cite the Pub or IRC. Otherwise, you're just making noise and being annoying.
