For me and a few other riders I know, an appeal of carbon rims is their enhanced ability to hold a true despite riding aggressively in rougher terrain. I might be totally wrong here, but I'm inclined to think that a carbon rim with more vertical flex/compliance might lead to greater changes in spoke tension, thereby reducing a rim's ability to hold a true.  It'll be interesting to see if their durability claims pan out nonetheless.
