American Standard flat-out states in their warranty that vitreous china can and does have imperfections which can cause cracks and failure of any of their products. That's why they offer a lifetime warranty.

And I actually know a landlord whose tenant promptly reported a cracked toilet tank. Landlord didn't pursue a warranty claim with American Standard, and charged the tenant (for emergency weekend repairs, no less, which were not necessary). Tenant sued in the local landlord-tenant court and won. Landlord had to refund all monies, court fees, interest, and punitive damages.

There are valid explanations that do not fall into the categories of 'normal wear and tear' and 'tenant damage'.
