I'm certain it'll look great, not a huge leap above Oblivion, of course- but great none the less and with mods it'll likely look even better. As you stated, DX9 can look absolutely insane... Crysis 1 being a great example. With high-res textures there's a crap ton that can be done with DX9 still. Yes, I'd prefer we all move onto DX11... but in time. Likely with the next gen consoles. Untill then I've nothing against enjoying a well-made DX9 game. It'll look great, it'll run great, win-win all around.
DX 9 or DX11 wouldn't do anything for the modding community, the API has NOTHING TO DO WITH MODDING!

So if a modder so chose they could make use of tessellation to help boost performance? That's what I mean from the ground-up I do wish it utilized a newer API.

There is a big difference between someone actually making good looking water and tessellation. Tessellation just makes it easier for developers to implemented and the hardware to accelerated it.
