Again, a mistake. It now does _not_ seem so.

The single non-solution I find is:

Triangle ABC has angle A = angle B = 50 degrees, angle C = 80 degrees; triangle PAB has angle P = 140 degrees, angle A = 30 degrees, angle B = 10 degrees; triangle PCA has angle P = 150 degrees, angle C = 10 degrees, angle A = 20 degrees; triangle PCB has angle P = angle C = 70 degrees, angle B = 40 degrees.
