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.
