Other than"it's unnatural" the only argument I have seen against toilet training is tracking waste. As you suggested a urine hat would work great at tracking pee and clean and dry it could be used to collect uncontaminated poo samples.
Personally I would notice a lot more of what my cat is doing in the bathroom on the toilet than in a litter box tucked away in a corner.
I would only want my dog to uses the toilet if the weather was too bad or if I was too sick to go out. Yeah I can your point about keep track of how much it is peeing. I forgot that some cats can get urine problems a lot.
