It is somewhat disconcerting to have someone say the datasheet
isn't a reliable source of information.

I always assumed when it said something like

RF Linear Amplifier
Grounded Grid Class B
Maximum Ratings
DC Plate Current 0.400 AMP

that's really what it meant.  Now it seems  maybe not!
(Why would they put that in there?  Did they just pull numbers
out of the air?)

Maybe you could step back a little from the current debate
and say a word about what the datasheet actually does say?
