Default Thoughts on water injection

I have researched water injection and come to the conclusion that it is a viable option for reducing intake temps and suppressing det. I would like to know everybody else's opinions. I am talking about high quality/high pressure/highly atomized W.I., not the windshield sprayer nozzle in the intake pipe setup. The biggest problem with the stock turbo on the WRX is its inefficiency(read:temps skyrocket) once it goes over 18-19psi. Am I wrong in thinking that water injection would allow much higher boost levels in stock trim, without worrying(as much) about detonation?

Any and all opinions welcome/encouraged,
Tim
