I don't think the compnenets are really goona care. Wheel sets might, but the components shouldn't.
I have to give the disclaimer that I don't have any experience with 11 speed stuff. If it's all carbon, there might be a crank issue for longevity given the torque we can put down when we get out of the saddle. That being said I doubt we out torque Cavandish or Boonen in a field bunch sprint.
I'm not a huge fan of the diminished chain and cassette life after Campy went past 9 speed, so I have 8 and 9 speed stuff, but will probably make the move to 10 speed sometime this year on a new build. Actually ShimaNO 10 sp chains and cassettes don't last as long either.
