Really? I was thinking they'd be much higher...
These diodes only rectify a [clipped] sample of the AC-HV: They only
need to block about twice the maximum Z axis voltage - approx 80-100 V
(depending on grid bias, tube etc), twice that are ~200 V reverse
voltage, at most.

I think almost all parts in the DC restorer circuits are quite critical
for leakage however. Reverse recovery must be fast enough for a couple
dozen kHz operation. (Which reminds me, I still didn't have the time to
look into the 7603 further :/
