Are these seat clamps a bad idea on carbon?

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

These J&L (ebay) clamps are cheap and have a low claimed weight (10g). But are they a bad idea for carbon frames and carbon seatposts because the surface area is a lot lower than a Woodman or Extralite clamp?

I've used these on two different carbon bikes, with zero ill effects.

Also, bought some barrel adjusters from the same guys--very nice!
