Yeah, running DH layup rear and EN front seems to be working for me in that precise setup.  That spoke/nipple setup is unquestionably the right answer (at least for my heavy untalented self).  I can see why somebody building whole wheelsets is going to be unavoidably drawn to the swan song of cool looking and slightly lower BNIB weights of 28H straight pull setups, but those aren't the ticket for wheels that last through seasons of use and abuse. For all my arguing below about environmental impacts of products we pedal around, being on season 4 of utterly smashing on my LB38's and LB35's with little maintenance has got to be better than churning through most any other option.
