I know. I hope the governments in question (most notably the UK one) know
how to use the session key and still don't demend the secret encryption key.
But the same is true when you only give them the encryption key. I think in
practice they'll just confiscate the computer and demand all passphrases.
Being able to protect the signing key is then rather unimportant compared to
the rest of the damage.
