 Probably not for 8.0, maybe for 8.1.
 Geli can be used not only with key-files, but with passphrases too.
 Good idea to have this ability, for example not during system start, but
 manually.
 Creating such partition: generate keyfile, enter super-user passphrase (to
 recover), enter user passphrase.

 Mounting and working with such partition: during start or manually - enter
 passphrase, mount to specified directory.
