No idea but antifreeze also protects the engine from corrosion, increases the boiling point, and provides lubrication for the water pump. Using straight water, distilled or otherwise, isn't advised even if you live where it never freezes. Coolant should also be changed occasionally as it'll lose its anti-corrosion properties over time.

The manual says to use distilled water with a 50:50 mix. 70% is too strong.

The engine coolant solution
should be between “F” (full) and
“L” (low) level lines on the engine
coolant reservoir. If the level is
lower than “L” (low) level line,
bring it up to “F” (full) level by adding
50:50 mixture of distilled water
and engine coolant.
