comment Transferring a large amount of data between continents
(As an example of one of ‘more legal uses’ mentioned in the answer, Facebook utilizes bittorrent to deploy their site, 1GB binary, to thousands of production servers. How unfortunate that a technology is discarded mostly because of one of its uses.)

comment How to store SSH keys?
I guess, having encrypted ~/.ssh hanging around on a usb stick would save from the need to generate and upload new key in case of the hardware failure. However, since there're very few servers that I use SSH keys to access (and very few machines I connect from), generating new keys won't cause much overhead.

comment How to store SSH keys?
Thanks, that clears things up a lot. Really, losing private SSH key doesn't look like an issue, since for all services I'm using there always seems to be another way to access a service to upload a new one.
