In my opinion, water beading up on an unprotected
car and drying is bad. Because when it dries, I see a crust of mnerals and it's hard to get rid of. Paint looks and feels damaged and visable roughness.
But, water beading up on a protected
car is a good sign that the was is still working. When it dries, it's easy to remove with no apparent damage. Feels smooth and looks the same.
On a protected vehicle, beading leads to sheeting.
I'm sure you can debate the virtues of beading vs sheeting, but in either case, I feel it's just the particular qualities of the wax exhibiting themselves, but in either or both cases, it's a good thing that indicated the stuff's working.
