Photoshop: Liquify linked masked with layer

Think when there is a possibility that when you liquify, it automate also liquify your mask for that layer? Think this will be a great feature. Because if you liquify your image you have to do your mask as well. Now I have to select mask and apple+f. But my mask is ‘linked’ at that layer, so feels more like a standard function than a exception. With a feature as this I can save a lot of time!

This does make a lot of sense. If the mask is linked and the user performs a Transform->Warp, the mask is transformed as well. I could expect the same from the Liquifiy Tool.

Ditto Puppet Warp.

My one reservation is that things fall apart when Smart Objects are involved. Puppet Warp doesn't warp the mask; warp transforms aren't allowed at all. Because I rarely seem to get a Liquify perfect the first time, I like to convert to a Smart Object first. My workaround is I mask first, then Convert for Smart Filters, which almost produces the results requested in the OP.
