Excellent blog post. I think the Cloud (SaaS) vendors need to go one step further, and provide Host-Proof Hosting[1] for the data that requires absolute confidentiality. Host-Proof Hosting is a pattern where the data is encrypted, and the SaaS provider has no means to decrypt it. The encryption/decryption take places on the user's computer.

There are some small vendors that are adopting this pattern, but it needs to become a standard offering in all SaaS platforms.
