Default Vinegar Bath

So I was reading the restoration section of the site and it mentions not to let cast iron pieces soak in a vinegar bath for longer them 30 minutes at a time repeating if necessary. What happens to pieces if left for 24 hours or so?

The reason I ask is I left a rusty piece I found recently in 50/50 vinegar water bath for roughly 24 hours. The pan can out great and didn't seem to have any ill effects. What am I missing?
