I have to admit that I haven't ever really put a straightened rim though much abuse, so i don't know about the strenght. I will say that I have had very true, and well tensioned wheels with straightened rims. I wonder if the work hardening from bending the metal would maybe strenghten in a little. I'm sure it would be more brittle, but it might be a little stiffer for the work.
