That's legit to not care, but ultimately the manifesto is about caring...

Good, but using weak security "channel" wise would mean leaving still 
only one layer and no matter what the main encryption's semantic is that 
it's a reversible process. Perhaps, the "(stronger) more the merrier".

... I'll avoid commenting the last message, except that as long as your 
server is located in country where there's a state of right and not some 
dictatorship you should not worry about your private keys (because 
that's the *kind* of keys needed after all), or another property of 
yours, for that mean, being handed to someone else "without you noticing".
Also I ultimately prefer to look at facts, rather than what "seems to 
be" :).
