The bad things about water base is that to much of it could make the driveway look like it is starting to crack but there is a good chance this is the sealer cracking not the blacktop. The reason for this is that since water and oil don't mix ( Which your driveway is made of oil ) that the water base don't sink in it forms a layer on top of the driveway.
