Frank, I have a fairly flexible wheel set and there is no issue with the brakes rubbing the rim in spite of noticeable deflection between the hub and the ground at the front wheel. I had posted this observation, but I can't find it no matter what.

The wheel set is 28H CXP23 built with 15-16 butted spokes and Shimano 6500 hubs. Your rim maybe stiffer than mine causing deflection further towards the top of the rim (?), but basically I'd just allow more clearance between the brake pad and the rim.
