    Why not?  I've always assumed that any vegetable matter will biodegrade, helped by the worm population, and subsequent healthy plant life will draw on such of its nutrients as they need to grow.  The only proviso is whether or not your moss will seriously affect the acidity/alkalinity of your soil, but even that can be rectified.

    I'm assuming you mean the blanketweed from ponds @jamesholt?
    You can certainly compost it - I do that with mine,  but I'm not sure how good it would be used directly on a bed in  large quantities. It can become quite a solid, caked mass when dry, so it could prevent moisture getting through effectively. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
