Post Grout Shrinking or Cracking

I am very interested in using Avaire in my bathroom but I have 2 concerns about it. The first is does the grout shrink and or crack over a period of time? When I say shrink I mean does the grout pull away from the tiles creating a open seam that water and dirt can enter.
My second concern is seeing this is a floating floor and you leave a 1/4 in gap between the walls, except next to the bathtub where you seal it with caulking, can you prevent water from getting to the subfloor? Example is if the toilet overflows.

Thanks

Paul
