modulation of low power rigs like DX-60

The popular low-power phone/cw rigs of DX-60 / Knight T-60 (etc.) vinage
were AFAIK not plate-modulated.  I was wondering -- what was/is the
advantage to the modulation methods used in rigs of that genre, opposed to
plate modulation??

Was there some preferred aspect to the screen modulation (or whatever it
was)...?  Is it not as "good" as plate modulation, and if so, why not?  Was
the modulator-circuit more or less just thrown into a basically cw-novice
transmitter, to allow for merely adequate voice capability (for novices
eventually upgrading to general class)?

Thanks for any comments...
