Tile to Wood floor joint

I just read an article in JLC about a tile inlay in a wood floor (a beautiful job). It made me wonder about the necessity to use a threshold when joining tile and wood. I now have a customer that has removed 2 walls to open up a foyer to the connecting rooms. They currently have wood floors in the other rooms and I'm putting polished marble in the foyer. Originally they planned on knee walls but now I'm wondering about leaving it open and simply making a " joint and caulking it to similate grout. Is this becoming more common? I expect I need to end nail the floor boards to make sure they can't raise up since I have no way of knowing where the end most nails are. Any other issues I might come up against?

Any insight would be appreciated.
