Super solution but can't be replicated in other databases like oracle. Identity is a near equivalent to rowid concept in Oracle but its a dynamic value i.e not a sequence generator . Hence may be Only possible in sql server.
If you change the start value of the identity seed (I'm pretty sure this can be done) and truncate the table the hard coded 1 would fail mind you it is a silly request in the first place and I suspect the OP does not even know what you are talking about.
