I've heard an anecdote on 2 out of 3 of those criteria:

In a bank that makes heavy use of SSH, the users have
to phone the help desk to get the key reset when the
warning pops up.  The users of course blame the tool.

I suspect in time the addition of certificate based
checking into SSH or the centralised management
of keys will overcome this.
