Lacquer gives a far superior looking finish than latex when done properly. I would never caulk anything I was lacquering though. Have you ever seen a factory made cabinet caulked?

Lacquer is flexible, but only as flexible as wood, since it is made of cellulose. It will not flex with the settling/movement of a house, thus it is bad practice to caulk under lacquer. However, even a latex paint will crack at the caulk lines as a house settles - nature of the beast.
