    Why would you want such a deep vacuum sucking moisture from the wood?

    That's why you use a vacuum control switch, you don't pull a super low vacuum. The vacuum bags slightly leak at the closure. The idea behind the vacuum bags is you get a uniform compression for even clamping. Yes, you can pull enough moisture out of wood, that it will be structurally unsound. One of the companies I worked for had a de-humidification branch for flood recovery. They hammered into us the importantance of proper machinery set-up and settings. Also to make sure the controls Panel cover was securely pad locked.
