On the whole, this envelope works - but it is a common principle that 90% of water ingress issues are from just 1% of the total building or structure exterior surface area caused by anything other than material failure in most cases.
it only takes a minor crack, hole or breach for moisture in all its forms (liquid, vapour, solid) to infiltrate the envelope (sometime with help from wind, mortar shrinkage, movement, freeze / thaw cycles, etc)
