Pre-soaking flake/pellets would be nearly impossible and a huge mess, although if it were physically possible I would definitely do so.
Think of it this way...when the fish eat the completely dry food, it's going to expand in their tummies. This can easily cause problems. It's why I like to pre-soak all freeze-dried food. Plus I think it's a lot easier to control how much food my fish are getting. I'd be careful letting kids handle tubifex, on the package it says it has an allergy risk, same as bloodworms. Just to be on the safe side :)
I really don't see a mess from pre-soaking though. Just let it sit in a bowl for a bit, stir it up, dump a bit in. My fish love 'hunting' these worms as the current spins them around.
To each his own though, as you said ;)
