Last summer I used one(fully loaded)for a distance of approx 90 miles after breaking a spoke. I was pretty impressed. I would say that for touring your still better off having real spokes. But if not this is a pretty good way to go.
I was able to get the wheel true enough on the roadside and continue my ride until I came to the first bike shop.
