Best respiratory medium for oxygen?

If air is considered to be better as a respiratory medium than water because (among other reasons) it diffuses better in it (i.e. The air) why is a respiratory surface considered better if it is moist rather than dry (i.e. Covered in an appropriate thin layer of water) ?
