Your experience with tubeless conversion of Continental Race King tires

Does anyone here have good or bad experiences with tubeless conversion of the Continental Race King tires?

I am thinking about getting the Supersonic 2.2 version of these tires and do a tubeless conversion using Stan's Standard Tubeless System. The Mavic XM 317 Disc rims that I have are listed on NoTubes.com as compatible with this tubeless conversion kit, but I am not sure if the tires will seal properly.

I appreciate any input you may have on this topic. Thank you very much in advance.

There's a thread on this on MTBR, but the consensus seems to be that the SuperSonic tires have too many micro-holes in the sidewall. I've read that adding glitter [or maybe flair] to the sealant, and using a combo of slime and Stan's might do the trick.
