Trainwreck pages..............diodes from plate to ground?

Trainwreck pages..............diodes from plate to ground?
I was glancing through the the Trainwreck pages and noticed a diagram for running 3 X in4007 diodes from each plate to ground to protect the power tubes and output tranny from damage.  
 
Can someone elaborate on how this works and if it is so beneficial, why don't more amps do not come stock with this setup?  
 
 
 
Thanks,  
 
Benjamin
