I could actually see something like that working for proprietary apps, and honestly I wouldn't really care -- proprietary apps have far more backdoors than a mandated M+N scheme would provide.

My main concern is that we might end up back in the era of "open source encryption is illegal". The 1990s are calling, just minus all the fun....
