So you don't think the intake tract would see any benefit from W/M? And that is the only portion of the A/F/E path that may benefit from it's cleaning properties?

Apparently that makes you knowledgeable on somewhere around 2% of all the installed and running W/M systems on the roads in this country today. Congrats again!

Actually quite a lot if not of the majority of diesels use straight water for EGT control.

Another falsehood. Most modern automotive soft parts use EPDM and other contemporary rubber formulations designed specifically to run in fuel systems containing alcohol and other corrosive chemicals. Ever heard of E10?

You brought up the redneck setup idea. Sounds like you may have some experience there. Consider yourself "called out."
