Matt,
Id' think that joint should have been set with alkali resistant mesh tape and thinset. From over here it looks like drywall mud and paper tape. I don't know if it's gonna cause you any...

Scott,
I see you found the info. The "mixed set" as the manufacturer calls it comes pre-cut. They're roughly about 2", 4", 6" x 24" sizes.

You need a minimum of 1/4" of slope per linear foot, so for that 6" pony wall, you're only talking about an 1/8" or a bit more. I think you should be able to shim whatever board you plan to use on...

The AS studio suite tub has an integrated tiling flange, so there was no need to use the wedi butyl tub sealing tape in my case. I was able to notch the bottom of the Wedi building panels...
