Nothing wrong with that!
You can go to just grid leak bias with the 811a's, or 572b's.
812a's are THEORETICALLY supposed to me better under modulation,
but I could tell no difference in peak modulation, distortion, etc, 
between the 811a and 812a tubes (with plenty of grid leak bias).

I have parts of an old homebrew 10 meter AM transmitter and it looks like
this is what he did too, only using 811s in the finals as well as
modulators.  Probably the simplest/cheapest way to get some power back in
the early 50s.
