I know what you mean but your insurance would not be null and void which ever way you spell null.

Condensation

occurs in an engine as the metal cases cool on the outside but are still warm on the inside, a bit like windows on a cold day.

The heat at the centre of the engine is higher than at the cases and therefore takes longer to disipate, known as heat sink effect.

The continual warming, and it is only warming as the engine does not actually evaporate any water content held in the oil, this only happens when  the engine has been working for a reasonable time. 

So effectively all you are achieving is building the water content of the engine, which turns to acid, which erodes the delicate surfaces of the engine internals.

If you are going to leave an engine static for a long period of time it is far better to fill the engine with oil so the oxygen is excluded from the engine thus making corrosion harder to take place, but remember to drain it and set the level back to the correct level before starting it otherwise severe damage will be caused.
