There is work in progress to support "advanced tokens" with PKCS#11
though, tokens capable of displaying the data about to be signed --
such as if the private keys was only stored on the Palm.  See the
draft PKCS#11 amendment:

The goal is to provide a API to devices with cryptographic information
that are capable of performing cryptographic operations.  Support for
PKCS#11/PKCS#15 in GNUPG could be useful, I think.
