I have had water pumps go bad.  Never seize, but leak, and it wasn't the 
o-ring either.

So let me get this straight.  To change the belt or water pump you have 
to take the grille off, the belts off, the cover, the IC, etc.  Why 
would you risk a $1500.00 plus repair bill for NOT changing the water 
pump and idler along with the belt?
