BJ, the book on yellow glue is that you can dilute it up to 10% and not lose any strength.

The only reason to dilute it (that I can think of) is to make it more spreadable. I do this in glueing up the bodies of my basses because I have a lot of ground to cover and it is all critical, strengthwise. I don’t want it to be too thick or glue starved, so the diluting speeds the spreading and I’ve had no failures in well over 100 iterations.
