We also have no evidence that this is true.
I think it's more consistent with Klaus' policies towards Sparks that do
have a government's protection -- the ones who _were_ governments, for
instance -- for "the slab" to be solely a punishment for misbehavior.
Just as Beetle was safe in the university while he stuck to the terms of
his surrender, a minor Spark is safe in the Baron's labs while he sticks
to the terms of his employment.
And, really, it'd be bad policy to kill minor Sparks just because they
are Sparks -- if Klaus did that, word would get out, no minor Spark
would dare come to Castle Wulfenbach, and all those caught on board
would do everything in their power to escape, scuttle the Castle, or
both. Klaus needs minor Sparks, and he needs a secure refuge; if he
killed Sparks for being Sparks, he couldn't have both.
