That's not a bad idea.  I've been wanting to try this out for a
while.  This would be the perfect excuse for me to try it out.

Does it matter?  If it were up to me, everything would be
encrypted--PGP/GPG encrypted E-mail, https all the time, sftp, etc.
I don't see why we should only encrypt ``sensitive'' data--why
should we give crackers such a limited set of data to work on?

As am I, though the major reason is probably a lack of applications.
