What's the verdict on riding Madfiber clinchers tubeless? Anyone doing it?

Early online reviews indicated they're compatible, but the story seems to have changed later on.

I'd ring up Madfiber directly, but I think they're busy nailing the windows and doors shut.

Happy new year, Weenies.

From what I saw on the posts, the Gen 1 (and maybe Gen 1.5) were succeptible to bucking under the pressure at the sidewalls (not confidence inspriring, considering that tubeless exerts the same pressure on the sidewall of the rim as a clincher, just without the tube). This may have been fixed with Gen 2, but I have no idea.
