'We've identified the public availability of exploit code that now shows code execution for the vulnerability addressed by MS08-067,' said Mike Reavey, operations manager of Microsoft's Security Response Center, in a post to the MSRC blog. 'This exploit code has been shown to result in remote code execution on Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.'"

The issue I see is with immersion. Sure you can coat the MB but what about the USB, VGA, etc connectors? Can you guarantee water will not leak in. Water has a way of getting inside any way it possibly can. Coating may be beneficial when you do not intend to put in case. Maybe to protect the MB as a bench system.
