Drywall to Schluter Transition sealing

This is not my wall but was watching this and was wondering how others would fix this transition to make sure its waterproof, silicone the gap?

I think the correct solution from the beginning is to use this bead but I've never seen it available before

Would you just grind out a channel in the mud next to the profile to allow for caulk?

I'm rather new at this but have studied Schluter stuff quite a bit.

I'm not sure why you'd want or need to waterproof a transition between kerdi and drywall. If you're getting water directly splashed onto that transition area, I think you've already done something wrong. If water is contacting the transition it is likely going to contact the drywall which is no good. I would extend the kerdi beyond the reach of direct water contact.

Like most tile installs, it extends just outside the shower alcove past the tub flange by ~1-2" which inevitably gets wet but most of the installs I've seen the tile extends out past the drywall(ie the backerboard and drywall are flush) so there is a 90 degree joint that gets caulked. In this case the tile is flush with the wall which I think looks nicer but I'm trying to figure out how to do that smoothly with the same caulked transition
