It's just not worth the risk experimenting with this stuff, especially not right now with road season having started.
I think the tape is being damaged by abrasion from balled up carbon fibers rolling around. This is likely exacerbated by letting the sealant dry out since there will be more carbon fiber balls and less liquid acting like a lubricant. The only part of a rim that comes in contact with sealant would be the rim-bed on a rim which doesn’t require tape. Even if the carbon rim-bed were exposed, it is hard enough not to be significantly damaged by abrasion.
That being said, if I’m in a race and my front tire loses all pressure suddenly, that could result in a crash. In the worst case, the air rushing into the rim cavity could cause catastrophic damage to the rim.
