I don't think this is true. Class C will generate terrible key clicks because 
it won't preserve the keying envelope.

  That is not necessarily so, the keying waveform will be altered for
sure, but I operated my Heath DX 100 for years with the plate current
completely cut off with the "clamp tube" because I was using a S.S. TR
switch and a single electron made noise in the receiver.  No one ever
mentioned anything wrong with my signals.  (RST = 599 even from friends
and co-workers)
