Maybe the materials have changed since you last went to your dealer.

When was this?
Any link handy please?
About halfway thru the article ::
"This was funny to me: ENVE wheelsets are offered because they haven’t gotten their own road carbon clinchers where they want them…and I quote: “(ENVE’s rims) are very good, no problems with them, but they are heavy.”

Novatech and American Classic put steel pieces on the freehub to prevent gouging.
Some people have hammered staples flat and slid them between the cassette and freehub. I've only seen this on Tune hubs. There needs to be enough slop for the staples to fit.
Sram cassettes are a little easier on the freehub than Shimano since Shimano for some idiotic reason leaves off 1/3 of the splines on the larger solo cogs- the ones that gouge the worst. Sram's splines are shorter than they could be, and rounded off, but at least they're all there.
Schwarzbrenner 25 and 42 clinchers are now available. Weights at 1178grams and 1398 grams. Priced at $2600 and $2900.
Airways and skyliner clinchers, 1185 grams and 965 grams. Price looks to be around $3700 (at todays exchange rate.) Won't be available until Spring 2014.
