As fgs reiterated, tension loss is less relevant to stringbed behavior, than loss of resiliency/elasticity.

Deadness has to do with dynamic properties of the string (such as dynamic stiffness). I think you can still control the ball with natural gut at super low tensions, as you still have that linear response and pocketing due to high elasticity/resiliency (even though power can become unmanageable). It's dead polys that become totally uncontrollable, afterall, why people can control fresh polys at 30s lbs?
