Using Italian Made Steel Roadie For Commuting?...

So I'm moving closer to work, and cutting my commute down to 16 miles (8 miles each way). This is the perfect distance to start riding to work; but I'm debating about using my current bike for this.

Expected Road Conditions:
50% Smooth concrete
25% Gravel
25% Potholes

Here's my current roadie...

My planned modifications:
1) SPD shoes + pedals
2) 32/24 spoke none deep-v wheelset
3) slick 28mm tires

I'm kind of worried about the frame though. I really don't want to 'abuse' it.
