Keep in mind that rimmed carbon wheels are flawed no matter who makes them. This push to disc brakes is not because of braking power, it is because no one can figure out how to solve the braking issue of carbon on rim brakes for the long term, Pros are racing wheels that get discarded weekly so it is no big deal.
Well 2 things
-"tons of well known brands". "Real" wheel brands are limited, Mavic, corima, zip, head, campagnolo, recently shimano, I discard Spinergy, ex rigida, Fir or even ambrosio, who are the shadow of what they were 20 years ago. I don't remember any of those brands making rims by light bicycle.
- if I agree that brakes remove a problem in carbon clincher rims... The corima aero clincher exist for 20 years and won few Tour de France since the end of the previous century with limited problems (as long as you respected the 7.5 bars limits the days you were on mountain stages. So it is totally a matter of tech / knowledge.
