Bought a Mini - have to use low pressure tank?

I just bought a Mini (hasn't come yet) but after reading the instructions via PDF, it says to use a low pressure tank (350 to 450 psi). Is this really necessary?

TIA

Edit: Just to be clear: I'm not talking a 3k or 4.5k tank... I'm talking about the regulator of the tank - either 850 psi (high pressure) or the 450 psi (low pressure).

I'm going to to buy a low pressure 68/45 but it just upsets me that I won't be able to use it on many other guns...

Ok, well I'll look through the manual but I still don't see the reason in taking a risk unless it says it's ok.

Edit: I looked through it again and didn't find anything saying a HP tank is ok. In fact, it recommends not once, but several times to use a low pressure tank.
