Assuming no sane person stores private keys on other people's machines,
getting hold of the data means in most cases that a laptop was stolen or
a disk was dumped without first destroying it.

For a laptop security aware people use disk encryption which also
protects the private key against the above cases.

The majority of comprises are due to remote automated attacks and these
are all involve the installation of malware.  No passphrase for an
on-disk key protects against this threat.

Ever played pinball?  I never heard about a half-tilt; it is tilt and
only tilt and you lost your ball or the game.  Same thing for computers.
