When I saw this post in the other thread I thought it was a joke, but since you posted it here, I think you are serious. So forgive me for taking it seriously if it is indeed a joke.

These are articulations for string instruments, not a waterphone. Many of them are either not possible on a waterphone, or are at least not idiomatic to the instrument. (Trills, bartok pizz, legato, etc.) and you're probably missing many of the truly idiomatic articulations (mallets, taps, scrapes, fx, superball scrapes, etc.).

I'd check out videos on youtube of a waterphone being played so you can see what it looks like and how it is played. It should clear a lot up about what's possible. It's not nearly as flexible as I think that you think it is.

If a specific violin articulation can't be played on a waterphone.
A computer software tool that can morph the timbre of the instruments articulations half way to each other might make it sound like the waterphone has strings like the violin + those violin body characteristics. Including bow/strings noises that is exclusive to the violin only.
And then half morph that into the bow/strings noises that only the waterphone can create.

Inbetween the violin and the waterphone lies a new hybrid instrument.

They could call it a 'Violophone' or maybe a 'Waterviol'!

Seriously though, I thought you were joking as well. However for the sort of hybrid instrument you describe it might be better to talk to the likes of Soniccouture who tend to specialise in making interesting variations on existing slightly unusual instruments. (They are not competitors to East West so I'm presuming it's ok to mention them here.)
