One thing that may gum up the works. The pre-flash / flash from the popup inside the case may cause flare on the lens. Check that out

Yepp, that's a very important pitfall. I plan to stick a piece of exposed film in front of the popup flash, that only an IR beam is released for communication with the slaves. (The popup flash doesn't have any other role under water anyway, there is too much backscatter if one lights up the subject directly without strobe arms).
