I do that (two wheelsets). My road wheelset saves about 600g off the gravel tire/wheelset (brings my bike down to the 16lb range). In my case, the cruising speed is probably similar as would a long gravel ride. But for out of the saddle acceleration and for climbing its a nice change. It increases my range a little too.

28mm tires reduces the trail slightly making the bike more agile, and of course the steering is much more precise with 28mm tires.
