Anyone use 32c's on Open Sports?

Time to re-rim my commuter/tourer/winter trainer/CX bike ...

It currently has some alarmingly concave A119's running 32c commutery tyres, or 32c CX tyres ... they are getting pretty close to the point of no return ...

I was wondering if Open Sports would be wide and robust enough to go CX and lug loads, bump speed ramps for 12 months of the year etc, while being a tinsy bit lighter and zippier than a straight replacement A119, the even more beefy A319 ... I've never been for a 6 month tour across unmade roads in the hindu kush, nor am I likely to in the timeframe these rims are looking at surviving.

Mavic say yay to 32cs on sports - but I've had rollover on Mavic MTB rims with tyres on the limit of the official OK - any experiance?
