I see encryption as fairly down the line, since currently
we have only a sketch of a system. There are fundamental
new things necessary, as well as lots and lots of interface
routines, visualizations, etc.
I would prefer to see it become seriously useful before
getting into that phase.
Of course, you could always encrypt the data set...
