Given a required RF output power level, any decrease in supply voltage requires a corresponding increase in current, a larger transistor and an output load network with a higher conductance load line. While the higher conductance load line can be achieved by a network providing a larger impedance transformation (impedance scaling), the RF losses associated with this network are higher unless the Q of the individual components can also be increased.
