Rotational weight has been undervalued. More is better. Those wheels will allow you to keep your momentum through the soft spots in the pedal stroke.

You can get all the benefits of an aero wheel, while still being able to carve a good line, really carve it, on the descents even with a high cross wind.

They would also have low rolling resistance on a polished granite surface...
