This doesn't answer the original question but here's what happened to my 4-yr old offset rims - Bonty Mustang ASYM mountain bike rims to be exact. This happened at almost every spoke hole. The sideways split was right along the inside support rib (could be seen in a hacksawed cross-section only) as the rib probably caused a stress-riser. No more OSB rims for me!

I think OSB rims are a solution looking for a problem. How many times do dished wheels fail because of their dish?
You're making a pretty large assumption, here, that it was the fact that the rim had offset spoke holes that caused the failure. That, unfortunately is not in evidence, nor is there any reason to believe that is the case.
