This open encryption standard has been around for a long time, is well-supported, and not too terribly difficult to use. [...] dealing with keys, key exchanges, and key management is more trouble than it is worth.
So in the end it's still too terribly difficult to use. I mean I'll probably book the hotel for skiing vacation via e-mail. I could encrypt the message, but if the hotel won't be able to decrypt it, I wouldn't have a room. Maybe if Outlook, Thunderbird, gmail or some other e-mail client could handle the keys automatically somehow...
