I have been working a bit in this direction, where the base idea is
"my freedom box needs to let me the complete control of the data"
but this control do not imply "physical control of the data".

I implemented a proof of concept in my cloudusb project, where
I keep programs and data encrypted in a bootable USB stick,
with an online backup of encrypted data, so to use on line resources
but keeping the control thru' encryption.

This could be applied in other configuration too: for example,
to have some data only online (crypted) so to have minimum
local hardware requirements.

Just remember, there's a right way and a wrong way to do everything
and the wrong way is to keep trying to make everybody else do it the
right way
