my first thinking: is the enve 3.4 clincher set as fast (or faster) than a zipp 404 set?
if affirmative, then i would be able to keep the same (or better) aero benefit, PLUS the lower weight for the set, using the ENVE 3.4.
second: considering the rear ENVE 4 is lighter than the rear zipp 404 and IF both have the same aero performance, i choose to go for the lightest so i can install a powertap and still keep a light set.
third: considering i have 90% flat terrain around and the rear wheel will be the ENVE 4, then i'd better go for the most aero front wheel (not deeper than the rear, of course) - and i THINK a zipp 303 with a 45mm rim and 16 spokes would be faster than the ENVE 3 with "only" 35mm rim and 20 spokes.
i apologize if i am being too picky, but i think this matter deserves a good discussion.
oh, how i wish ENVE would release a 45mm/55mm SES...
