The discretion probably relates to purging and re-greasing the bearings every 6 months, which is a pain.They now offer a lifetime warranty on bearings, but going on the fine print at their discretion.

My Chris King headset has been set and forgot apart from a rubber o-ring that split but once replaced have not thought about it. Heard many mixed things about their hubs and replacement parts, drivers etc are big dollars.
I really like the CK headsets too but I do remember that they had a machining issue that was leading to premature wear a while ago. But tbh I've never had a problem from Cane Creek 40 series headsets either and the easily replaceable bearings and modular parts are a plus.
