But consider: a resistance change on the 200R resistor of page 6
will directly affect output voltage. 200R * 5mA = 1V.
A 100 ppm change of the 200R Resistor has a 1V/8.2V 
= 12 ppm change on output voltage.
All other resistors have below 1ppm change with 100ppm resistance change.

So the 200 Ohms resistor will be the most 
critical for tempco and ageing in the whole system.

So in my opinion its only worth to consider if you 
really need to save the 20-30 mA for the heater.

With best regards
