bent wheel on GF Tarpon

I bent my rear wheel this weekend pretty bad on a local trail. I doubt the LBS will be able to fix it so I will most likely need to buy a new one. I would like to eventually upgrade my bike to disc brakes, and was wondering if it would be a good idea to buy a wheel that has a v-brake rim and hub that is disc compatible? I guess my underlying question would be, is the only drawback of that type of wheel its weight, or are their other reasons not to buy this type of wheel?
