It's actually just physics. Light gauge string tuned down so low won't be tense enough to give you a positive feeling while playing.

To tune that low what you'll want to do is get heavier gauge strings. They'll stay tighter and thus be more comfortable.

I use DR hi beam's (10-52) for drop C and B and they stay perfectly tight (without being immobile), and give you good leeway for a good 2 step bend if you need it.
