In as much as they both produce the same results in detecting glue residue, the water has a tendency to raise the grain in some woods requiring extra sanding as opposed to mineral spirits. I do use both choices as well depending on what wood I’m using or if I will be sanding the piece after the glue up.
In respect to using the water for raising the grain of a small indentation with heat. Denatured Alcohol works effectively as well. Here again the choice would be depending on the situation at the moment.

I do agree that we sometimes get caught up in a method of work and tend to overlook other methods of work to accomplish our goals.
