Thinning for Penetration

Don Stephan
In the last week I've seen several suggestions here or elsewhere to thin a finish so that it penetrates deeper into the wood. Anyone done any experiments. My expectation is it would depend on several factors - size of the finish molecules, polarity of the cells and molecules, . . ., and that it would sometimes help and sometimes not make a difference.
