Generic questions for possible future work:

As a general guideline, would it make sense to add javax.security.auth.Destroyable to the set of interfaces for SecretKey and PrivateKey implementation objects where possible?

Should the methods that use secret and private keys check to see if those keys implement the Destroyable interface to see if they should call isDestroyed() from that interface prior to using the key?
