I see recomendations for water miscible oil paint for ease of clean up and not using solvents.
Can you please comment on them from the viewpoint of longevity?

They appear to remain sensitive to water even after dry for
a substantial time. However, this could be said of other popular
paint mediums as well. I also believe that the additives used to make them
initially water miscible can migrate. Again, this is not unique to Water miscible oil paints.
Water miscible oil paints tend to be less fully pigmented
than the highest quality ranges and are usually sold as entry-level paints. Therefore,
it is probably unfair to compare them to superior oil paints lines that contain
no fillers and only the most minimal stabilizers.
For now these assumptions are probably good ones. However more time is still needed (and far more research) in order to confirm these theories regarding WM oil films.
Some of the stabilizers/fillers used in this category of oils are borrowed from the food and cosmetics industries (as revealed in patent applications). I've been curious for a while about the long-term performance of these additives, which are different from stearates.
