I'm not sure if I understand what you mean by this,
but with the filament bias approach this wouldn't work.
With filament bias, the filament itself is actually a
substantial part of the bias resistor.

Im my 801 linestage the bias resistor is only 33 Ohms.
I still use the ultrapath connection. The B+ side of
the lineout transformer is returned to the - side of
the filament. So the AC signal actually bypasses the
bias resistor (at least from the midrange on upwards)
