michel – not storing an encrypted copy of your private key would make it very difficult to share files with other people. It’s also a good idea to have an escrowed (stored on the server) private key in case of virus infection on the endpoint.
Having the key escrowed is no different to uploading an encrypted file to the cloud. If somebody can break into the encrypted private key then they could also break into the file without the private key. It makes no difference.
