I completely agree with you regarding the darkroom experience with a specific equipment but I've never tried a black and white head and I really would like to cop are it with my CLS.
Regarding the electronic heads you're right, they'll fail one day, so I'll get a VLS or the classic variopoint.
The variopoint should be the cheapest but it's a condensed head (the CLS and VLS are diffused from what I know) and I've red different kind of comments about condensed VS diffused.

If the VLS needs factors to be detremined with modern papers, why not do the same thing with the CLS that is already on the enlarger using M and Y filtration? Most papers come with tables for that in their data sheets which make nice starting points. This would safe a lot of money, trouble and time to make prints.
