No. I am saying "How do I know?" There is a lot of badly done crypto
out there. It is not easy to do it well. How can you tell the
difference between the good stuff and "slapping a sticker on"? It matters.
Similarly, I'm not saying the next person I see on the street is
dishonest, but neither do I know whether he or she can be trusted to
return a large loan of cash on a mere smile and handshake. How do I know?

Yeah, sounds cool, doesn't it? I think it also qualifies as a "term of
art" with a precise technical meaning. You could say "multiple
encryption" if you prefer. Sounds stuffier to me.
