It's interesting for sure, but just based on the geometry and material of a spoke, they sure wouldn't provide much support in compression. Further, the bottom ones wouldn't be in pure compression (bending forces as well) which would make them even more feeble, support-wise. I'd love to hear more on it though. I'm sure there's some reasonable amount of "load sharing" going on between spokes.
