I think we are talking about two different curves.
1.  V-I curve of  plate with constant bias voltages ( this determines how 
good the constant current sink is over a range of plate voltages)  you must 
stay away from the region where the plate voltage is close to the screen 

2. The non-linear relationship between the grid voltage and the plate 
current. You want a linear control knob for your instrument.  And the 
answer is yes for a first order correction as long as you meet the 
conditions stated in item 1.

What plate voltage range do you want? Do you plan to use op-amps or other 
solid state devices to generate g2 voltages?  If you are generating 
voltages for both g1 and g2 using solid state amplifiers, why not go to a 
feedback system to achieve linearity?
