RE: tightening torque, cut through?

It's important for that type of rca connector to have a snug fit. The compression function of the rca connector involves the flayed strands of the braided shield to be folded back onto a compliant (soft) cable jacket, and there isn't the same type of cutting edge that a binding post hole can cause when a binding post nut is tightened onto the vulnerable wire strands.
