Its a good idea, but I guess the problems is that you will not know if the wetout was successfully unless you later drill an inspection hole - or two, or three.
The placement of the vacuum lines will be critical, but even then you wont be able to see it working or - not.
Is it worth the time and trouble of a few test runs on small samples, versus doing it in two stages ?
It seems at first glance that the second stage stiffener is such a small component, doing the rib section by hand as stage 2, would probably be the most efficient method overall, unless you have to do many units.
