Thanks for the replys. I guess my question really is does Specialized make these wheels with the intent for people to eventually upgrade to disc brakes while using these wheels. Or is it easier on their parts inventory management to stock just the Deore Disk and Stout Disk hubs for both types of wheels? I have read concerns about eyelets and the spoke bed for rim brake rims not being strong enough to resist the additional strain put on the spokes by disc brakes. Perhaps I am being overly cautious.

Anyway, I decided to use them but I'll keep a mental note that perhaps these wheels may not last as long as they should and to inspect them more carefully for any problems. I guess that means I should wash the bike more often .
