Looking to buy a light 16h front hub. Got one on your parts bin?

Any reason, other than the aesthetics of empty holes I guess, not to use a 32 hole hub? Those are a lot more common than 16 hole drillings.

Probably not particularly light, but I have an early Mavic Cosmic hub.

Left/right flanges' hole offset is wrong - on a 32 hole hub, the drilling offset between sides is 5.625 degrees - but it'd need to be twice that to work right. If you did lace it up, it'd put a lot of twisting force on the hub.
