Comete disc track conversion?

Same question from me as the Zipp conversion except for a Comete but i thought the wheel may be different enough to justify a different short thread -- Anyone know of a conversion? I just dont envision doing a road TT ever again and converting this might let me squeeze some more use out of it

I tried to donate it to a local junior triathlete and he was mystified at the need to glue on the tires -- sheesh -- kids today

Googling says it's a Mavic 575 hub? I can't find any information on the hub, but a fixed gear conversion kit will rely on some kind of a non-round bit inside the hub to anchor the conversion kit. The 105 hubs had such a feature, allowing someone (name escapes me.. So-something) to make a fixie conversion kit with a true reverse threaded lock ring bit.

I don't know 3D printing or CAD/CAM but I have to imagine that once you scan or measure or whatever the inside of the hub, someone would be able to make an axle with said "plug" along with a threaded bit for the cog and lock ring.
