I'd love to see an option in the liquify dialog to apply the edit to both the layer and it's mask. as it stands now you have to liquify the layer, select the mask, go back to the liquify menu, select load last mesh and apply it again. I know you can make an action to work around this but it would be easier and more intuitive to just have an option to do it together.

It makes so much sense. Also some plug-ins do it without letting you know: most blur and sharpen filters for instance. (If the link between layer and mask is not disabled)

little addition: it's also possible to just select the mask right after applying the filter and do a cmd/ctrl+f to reapply it. doesn't change the main suggestion though since it's still an extra step.
