My logic was that if the tile is caulked to the tub deck then the water isn't getting out anyway. You could leave some openings in the caulk but those wouldn't guarantee that water won't accumulate somewhere where along the flanges, and those openings might even allow water to get in, and they might well be a constant area of mold/mildew build up.

Mitigate the potential for water intrusion. Use a porcelain tile and epoxy grout.
