I don't think you'll have any issue with the disc dynohub. Rear wheels survive a lot of abuse with a ton more dish. And who knows you might find yourself wanting to use the hub on a bike with disc brakes at some point.

I use a LED headlight and like it a lot. It's nice not to have to worry about bulbs burning out. I leave it on 24/7 as a daytime running light.
