I'd say it's durability vs. price, but durability may be hard to estimate and no company will say that their product is short-lived.
Since half the people move within 7 years and almost all within 14 years, you may not need 'lifetime' caulk. With frequent remodeling less than 7 years may be enough.
Water cleanup is less trouble than using mineral spirits to clean up but water-based caulk may not last as long.
And it took me some looking to find a clear, water-based caulk for my Corian kitchen countertop.
