I think that MOST malt extracts are concentrated by boiling under a
vacuum. Any that are called "DME" (diastatic malt extract) have to
be so they can lower the boiling point to a temperature which won't
destroy the enzymes.
As to the value of reduced trub.. even neglecting any taste effects,
you at least end up with more beer.
