I suppose by 'plain text' you mean 'clear text' in the jargon of cryptographers, since even an encrypted message is 'plain text'. Yes, you have a point there.

On the subject of encrypted messages, I suppose the off-line-storage companies could reason that as only the person sending or receiving data has to be able to read the message, it's best to leave it to him what needs to be encrypted and how it is encrypted; a business with a passion for secrecy is not going to trust the off-line storage company either.

What I was really objecting to was your assumption that 'secure' was the same as 'confidential'.
