The air cooled systems don't have a reservoir that can out gas making it necessary to fire them up every several months to keep this from happening. Those are reserved to the higher powered, often water cooled, systems.

I thînk you misread my response. Gas leaking from an autfill reservoir is one mode of increasing gas pressure failure and the other is trapped gas in the bore outgassing over time. Early Coherent innova tubes had yet another unique but similar gas issue. They were prone to hydrogen outgassing in tubes produced from 1981 to mid 1985. We solved the problem in tubes manufactured after that era.
