Whether or not you need a protein rest depends on your malt. I've seen some very well-modified, low protein wheat malt in the same range as "typical" NA pale malts. I personally own some very undermodified, high protein wheat malt. My efficiency when using that malt is easily 10-15% lower if I don't do any low-temp (protein) rests. Running that malt through my mill at my "standard" barley setting wouldn't even crush the kernels.
I don't use rice hulls, but I'm really, really anal when conditioning and crushing the barley to get intact husks. If you suspect your crush isn't perfect, it's not, and you need rice hulls. As much as I love drinking wheat beers, I hate brewing them. I think when this sack of wheat malt kicks it, and I can buy a more suitable malt, my tune may change.
