That’s how D’Addario describes ’em:

I’ve used them and it’s preferable to gutting a 12-string set (IMHO).

My favorite place to use Nashville tuning was on an old dreadnaught I rebuilt many years ago that was kind of fragile.  A former owner had shaved the braces way too far, and it couldn’t take full string tension.  Even with the rebuild, it was not really good at full tension – kind of tight – but Nashville sounded great.
