You don't understand. The point is about managing bugs from just about
any Internet-connected computer. Using your GPG key on such a computer
is very dangerous. This is indeed one of the best ways to have it

The password doesn't protect it, by the way. If you want to do something
with a bug, you'll have to type the password. On a cracked computer,
this means giving the password to the attacker.
