Most boats would probably be ok with it, but not if everyone did it.. right?

It's awesome, just would work everywhere for everybody. I do like the PVC "bowl" though
Depends...great lakes divers have a lot of crap, and the bucket fits as well as most other solutions. It doesn't fit under seats, but other divers take a bunch of that space, and I usually take the spot with a big support leg.

It also fits enough for team gear, so offering it as a good place for masks, hoods and dry gloves goes a long way for goodwill. But yeah, it's not the right solution for everyone on the boat to use, and I dont bring it to travel locations.

I do have a rigid system for my tools and camping gear, so I might try out their rectangular crates next time I actually dive...
I'm partial to this type of crate. 24x14x10.5. Fits under the types of bench seats found on many (California) dive boats. Long enough to fit an XL Jetfin or M Mares Quattro. Solid bottom and sides which prevents little bits (e.g. goodman handle stainless screws, wing nuts, o rings etc) from escaping if they drop into the bottom of the crate. Being closed it does collect water, but small diameter drain holes drilled into the sides partially solves that problem. Also being closed it's a bit more stout than the traditional milk crate meaning you can stack heavy stuff (e.g. scooter w/saddle) on top.
