Of course. The worlds most expensive glazed painting is a myriad of cracks. ☺

Paint peeling is even more bad effect than myriads of cracks. Use acrylic for flexibility

Re: No galkyd required? I don't get it.

I am going to get the paints I need for now and the medium ingredients are just going to have to wait. They add up really quickly especially if you buy them all at once. I will just go with my old technique for now until I can get everything together; then I will try it.

Yes just paint. Let the others worry about the future.

Yeah, that is very true! And, while you are deciding to let the chips fall where they may, in terms of archival integrity, you may as well select, or invent a painting medium that causes your paint to behave precisely the way you want it to. May as well make your painting life easier, while dismissing the archival aspects of it.

Re: No galkyd required? I don't get it.

If you are really worried about paint cracks and peeling, then I advise you to do digital art instead. The digital image will render at different sizes and colors on different machines, and maybe someday the technology will change so that the file is unreadable. But at least it won't crack or peel.

Your file will be unreadable after about decade. Your painting will crack and delaminate after hundred of years due to Zinc content in between layers and ground. Zinc-free water washed walnut oil rigid paintings do not yellows and can stay forever according to Spurgeon articles.
