Scot,
I've had some success with weighting a piece like this that I thought was going to warp. Even where I used to work where we used VHB tape to glue laminate tops to sheet metal cabinets or safes we'd weight it down to improve the adhesion.

The warning with using a weight would be that the parts tend to "slide" then. Sort of like dropping the boogie board on the last little bit of a wave on the beach and stepping on it. If you don't step directly down you'll slide a bit on the water. I've got a few scrap pieces from that reaction. Clamping gives the same type of "sliding results" if you aren't careful.
