See the FAQ under "Swamp proofing"
Short story, if the vent is submerged and the engine stalls, you run the risk of pulling water into the case when attempting a restart.

Same for the carb lines, but you don't need to stall. If all four lines are submerged, it will draw water into the bowl. My '05 WR has the vent lines split for about an inch plus an angle cut. I still ran the two top lines into the airbox.

yes I agree. after drowning my WR I decided to run the hose to the air box and figured I might as well give it filtered air to breathe. It's been great so far. I actually drilled a hole in the top/front of the box and sealed the nippled with black RTV.
