Straight pull spokes with fat tires?

After looking into wheel building, it looks like everyone is using J-bend spoked hubs rather than straight pull spokes. I'd like to (save some cash) and use my Mavic Crossride hubs to lace up to something wider rim like a Large Marge.

Any problems I'd run into using a DH specified rim to a "not-so-DH" hub?
