I think if someone finds a workable non-conductive cooling fluid that
would probably be the best thing. I fear the first time someone is
working near their power outlets and water starts squirting, flooding
and electricuting everyone and everything.

In the long run, I think this is going to solve a lot of problems, as
cooling the equipment with a water medium is more effective then trying
pull the heat off of everything with air. But standardization is going to
take a bit.
