RE: "a 1 watt film resistor should do quite well"

What about those who advocate using a 1/2 watt or even a 1/4 watt resistor? They contend that it would serve as a "fuse" and open if the tube began drawing excessive current. Is there a negative to using a lower wattage, other than the possibility of occasionally replacing a resistor?
