Anyone ever mix EL-34L's with EL34's?

I need to retube my JVM 210H pretty soon and I've got a bunch of EL34's but I also have a
fresh matched pair if EL34L's.
I'm wondering if I can mix them in and if I can how? the EL34l's on side or one on each side?
anyone?
or is this a bad idea?

The ones I have are JJ's
I had them in the Landry and you could definitely hear a difference between them and regular JJ EL34's

I follow about the tonal differences. My point is there is no apparent "technical difference" between JJ's EL34, E34L and EL34 II, so you should be able to mix/match them without issue.

Usual caveat about tube idle current & biasing still applies here.
