The caulking called for in traffic areas (Shore A Hardness 35 or greater) is generally urethane based and you're certainly correct that it's not easy to find and the color selection is quite limited. Prolly why it's so seldom used in real life.

Waterproofing isn't a requirement, though, for floor traffic areas.

My opinion; worth price charged.
