Yes that would be great for a game with main >90% terrain=water like sea of thieves for example. And the pick capture will run yes, on the terrain.
But I see 3 limits in this:

> The Collision: Terrain collision is hard, I suppose water is should be soft; maybe you want to allow the player to plunge and go down in water, actually I used the terrain as "debug" for the
That's great how you just did the math on that and made it work.
Would be cool to set an invisble texture on the terrain and then pick the terrain to make obects float above it at the water level. Would a terrain pick capture the wave height?
It's going to be cool to see stuff floating on this.
It is interesting because it is basically rocket-jumping plus puzzles. You can switch back and forth between action and thinking as the game progresses, without a very obvious transition. Half-Life does this a lot.
