Bob, keep in mind that not everytime can a capacitor type be switched to another.
Capacitor types and their uses :: Radio-Electronics.Com
The ceramic type caps are used in high frequency applications. Typically, they are used in circuits which bypass high frequency signals to ground. Which in this case is ideal.. other types of caps can also do the same thing, but I recommend that these are used for their compatibility, price, efficiency and most of all their size.
Hence why I said....
just as efficient for this application as the SMD.
