Your dedinition of seaworthiness is yet the briefest and most generalized. Its a good one.
Other deffenitions:
1. "Seaworthiness is basically the ability of a boat to live in heavy weather without swamping, capsizing, breaking up or being heavily damaged while underway"..(Howard I. Chapelle..auther of "yacht designing and planning".
2. "Strong durable and watertight construction, structurally sound rig, good survival charachteristics in extreme weather conditions".

I'm still accumulating other views..as you can see i find a very close relation to these deffenitions and the concept of "safty", and the concept of "the perfect boat"..
Awaiting for more input from people!
