Well in any case clearkeys shouldn't be an option. Without Wallet API 
you can still cipher the data but then how would you store the keys to 
decipher it. The main issue being that the code is readable so it's not 
like we can obfuscate anything.

Honestly, to me, you shouldn't allow to store secrets when there are no 
wallet-like APIs.
