"Absolute Max" Plate Dissipation?

Okay, so I've heard that the max plate dissipation of the G.E.C. KT66 (and its copies) is 25w. However, their spec sheet says that the tube's "absolute max" is 30w. What's the difference? I thought, by definition, the word "max" meant "absolute."

I'm confused...

Hmm. I guess so... Then again, G.E.C. I think stands for General Electric Company, as I think they bought out Marconi-Osram. Not sure, though.
