OAUTH + some management seems to be the answer I think would be fine:

1) OAUTH so that no app has my actual password, they have essentially per-app passwords

2) management somewhere (my OAUTH provider?) that will let me de-auth all the passwords associated with my device in case it's lost.

Though honestly, I'd be pretty happy with just 1. first-use-time login and 2. a decent phone lock-screen.
