Is there truth to the claim made on notubes.com about there rims

"This new rim design eliminates the traditional bead hook and uses our new bead socket technology™. It moves the sidewall of the rim down by 2-3mm to virtually eliminate pinch flats. The curve of the side wall is the same shape as the bead of the tire so it fits together like a ball and socket joint. This new design will help reduce strain on the bead while creating a tighter seal"

Does anyone have expirence that there is a tighter seal? Is it best to use non UST tires and convert them with this wheelset?

Thanks for the info.
As a side note is there any stiffness diferance between these rims and the Mavic SLR's
