I do wonder how many of those are to make past signatures deniable, and how
many can be accounted to "I feel that my pass-phrase is safe".
For the latter, I don't get it -- it's not like keeping the key secret takes
a lot of effort -- but it does decrease your security ever so slightly.
Besides proving a point, why would you publish?
