Comment:

 Further more, I think that without this, standard users don't actually
 have any use of encryption with unprotected keys - when HDD is lost or
 stolen, one just mounts root partition under live-fs and gets the keys for
 encrypted partitions from /boot.

 Couldn't there just be an additional option in installer for protecting
 keys with passphrase?
