You still seem to be missing the relevance of unscrupulous
administrators and compromised systems to "man in the middle" any
interactions you have with this system.  Unless you never access the
data yourself once the unscrupulous admin or attacker has gained access,
then such a person can pretty easily intercept your password and get at
your data.
