I think that the way the heel and neck joint works on most standard classical guitars would prevent much of the lateral neck movement that you've suggested - stretching the treble strings and compressing the bass strings. The neck is designed to have lengthwise flex (or maybe that's virtually unavoidable in a traditional, lightly-built guitar), but if there was much of this side to side flex, this would cause some pretty awkward tonal distortions.
