Never storing/saving the Secret Key on computers would enhance security against a few attack methods, but is currently not an option because of the inconvenience of remembering and/or entering the 34 character key. However, some hardware tokens (such as nearly every YubiKey model) support saving a static password in one of the configuration slots, which could be the 1Password Secret Key. Inserting and tapping the button on a YubiKey is a very minor inconvenience compared to the security gain of not having the Secret Key be stored anywhere that is targetable. It's also easy to program an additional YubiKey as a backup, and storing that in another location (such as a personal safe or bank safe deposit box).
Would 1Password consider this as an advanced option for those who would use it?
