This idea is neat; but it sounds speculative and only useful to a
certain subset of people (not everyone is involved with projects that
use split or shared keys).

So it doesn't seem like an objection that should block a plan to improve
user experience on more common practice (many more people will have two
devices than will work with project-related (sub)keys) so i lean in the
direction of pursuing Vincent's original approach for now.
