I initially gave it a bit of thought and was slightly apprehensive but in retrospect there was no need to worry. I haven't looked back.
Because I'm sad and had 10minutes to spare I've just weighed some hubs:-
XT M756 sixbolt large flange disc hub=500g
XT M756 six bolt large flange disc hub=315g
Not a lot of difference and in the case of the two front non disc hubs non at all,but the MTB hubs are far better sealed from the weather than the road hub.
