Uni-seal rotation or linear action

I started using uni-seals last year and I'm very pleased with their flexibility. I realize that their primary function was to provide an alternative to bulkheads for rounded surfaces but I've found them excellent for flat surfaces too and I'm exploring more uses.

I find that while the fit is initially very tight, once in place, they can move in/out and rotate with some force applied. This doesn't seem to leak or even weaken them over time (so far).

I'm curious about going further and potentially actuating through a uni-seal as part of a system design. Basically, if I want to rotate a pipe end, stick it through a uniseal and rotate the dry side. The wet side moves without a leak...

Same with in/out translation motion.

Anyone done this?
