Have AAA also. Just prefer to fix my problem and be on my merry way if possible.
The only thing I can see about a tubeless tire without the safety bead is a catastrophic deflation if you center punch a large rock, hole, or such. The momentary impact is enough to unseat the bead for a moment, which would do nothing to a tube tire. I reckon that possibility is really low though, especially compared to the odds of getting a puncture. Since I don't ride offroad with it, the pressures are never low, reducing the chance of popping the bead. I am definitely sealing the rear and going tubeless, I think I may do the front as well. Still on the fence.
