R540 aero front?

Would a shimano R540 have good enough aero quallities to use it as a TT front wheel? I have an old damged set laying about and realized that with the 16 spoke count that this might be a better TT front than my Cane Creek Volos or Mavic Equipes.

1) well, first things first, i would "undamage" them before you ride it to be safe
2) low spoke does not necessarily mean aero
