Simple. Most people want flat white ceilings. So them make a very
flat, high cover inexpensive paint that generally can't be washed at all.
It would not work well on a wall, but great on a ceiling.
If you want to use wall paint on a ceiling, go ahead. It will not hurt.
Right. It works because sunlight has a lot of yellow light and blue cancels
yellow. I really like the nice bright ceiling afforded by titanium white
ceiling paint with the faint trace of blue. Benjamin Moore is not cheap,
but is good.

I am not sure that this is true of all "Ceiling" paint. Last time I painted
our ceilings, I started with white ceiling paint but it had a cream or off
white cast to it which I did not like. I started over with the same brand of
supper white wall paint with was a much "whiter" white.
I was told ceiling paint reflects more light not a gloss but has a glare you
would not want on walls with a blue tint to off set the reds from
incandescent light most people have in their ceiling fixtures

Nothing, it is just cheap paint because ceilings are subject to the
wear and tear that walls receive such as frequent washing and
abrading. You don't need something better, but if you want a better
paint use wall paint.
