The spokes will require something to keep the nipples from loosening off when all the tension comes off the spokes as shown in the picture. Being a single wall means the rim tape will offer some assistance in that regard. Spoke breakage from all that detensioning and tensioning will lead to earlier failure. Zipp will need to use really good springy spokes to minimize fatigue related failures.
