To each his own. But from my point of view if there was to be anything
gained the tube manufacturer would have put fins on that part of the tube. 
I would also guess that they would have had the fins in the proper
orientation to air flow with air blowing thru the fins and not across them. 

I suppose pure silver power cords will be the next fad here.
