Is that really necessary or did the designer done that the same way he could have used silver wire or isolation feet?
Does it really make a difference to make it worth it to implement that way?

I don't see anything extreme-higend in this amp. -40 dB of 3'rd harmonic plus grass of higher order harmonics, unreliable solder joints; can decreasing inductance that starts acting at tens of megaherts help? I don't think so.
