RE: Not to beat this thing to death but can anyone address the pentode ?

The supply needs to be well reg'd, but it is not 'a fraction of B+' that is important, it is exactly what the combination of B+, idle point, load mixes with the effects of g2 voltage. The data OP's are for max power, probably best if you don't know why you're doing it to reduce the g2 voltages by at least 10%, maybe 15%. Depends on who wrote the data sheet.
