NST rectification instead of filtering

Original poster: "Forest Darling" <fdarling@xxxxxxxxx>

I am considering rectifying the output of my NST to use DC charging of
the 'tank' capacitors. I was wondering if this would make RF filtering
unnecessary... It seems by the circuit design that backwards a
rectifier simply blocks back flow by having the same type of voltages
go to both ends, either shorting it out or just canceling it out.
Would it work?

Heres is an image of the circuit, just imagine it backwards from the
oscillator's point of view:
