HMC7357 wrong Maximum Ratings?

I'm working with the HMC7357, but the maximum ratings that I've found on the product datasheet seem odd to me. It says that the Gate voltage must be tuned between -0.4V and -2V to achieve Idd=1200mA, but it's the same range that is found on the maximum ratings table for Vgs! Moreover it seems odd to me that the maximum gate voltage is only -0.4V, instead of at least 0V.

Any help is much appreciated, thanks in advance.
