Wanting to use carbon rims was a primary factor for us moving to dual discs. Although I'm keeping a road/caliper fork and mechanical calipers in my back pocket (for when/if I ever need to go back to using rim brakes), I would never use carbon rims w/rim brakes for general purpose riding which may involve a lot of descending or wet conditions (ie: touring days when there is no other choice).
