Are there any advantages of double glazing over triple?

Obviously triple glazing is going to be better in terms of heat retention, but other than cost, are there any reasons to still consider double?

Sometimes the only downside is the benefit itself. Triple glazing stops even more heat escaping, but it does this by stopping air escaping. Having a house where the air never escapes and gets replaced can slightly lower the air quality, especially if you're used to burning candles and things.

There is one thing I can think of. The absolute best performing double-glazed windows can actually be net contributors to heat in the house, with them absorbing heat from the sun when it shines through. Triple glazing negates this factor a little, and depending on the placement may actually be a detriment during the day. They'll still be far more comfortable on a night though.
