Yep, how bout a Gunslinger trying to get through Black Hole with 13k health? in blues no doubt..(i dont know really I didn't stay around long enough to check his gear).
meh. Ilum/Corellia dailies can be done in pretty crappy gear. I've done the Ilum/Belsavis dailies numerous times on L47 characters as the XP is significantly better than class quests (especially Ilum since most of the missions are super short and give good XP). They usually have around 13k health at that level. As long as you don't get sloppy or aggro 2 groups, it's not tough.
BH, at least Empire side, you never have to fight anything harder than a strong/normal or an elite by yourself. The heroic is also quite easy. They can all easily be done "sub-par" gear.
