I like that idea.  It would be nice to fly along the coast of a tropical 
island, look down and be able to see the white sand under the water... or 
flying above a coral reef and see the corals on the sea floor. =)

Seperating land and water will also allow tidal effects to be modelled.  As 
for underwater exploration, I for one wouldn't mind taking the UFO down and 
see some underwater landmarks such as the Titanic.  hehe.
