That's indeed a great improvement on what we have now, and actually
looks like you first introduced it in r1200040 :)
Why was it not kept that way?

We'll still need a (graceful) restart to renew the keys, though.

Also, it seems there is interest in sharing the keys accross different
instances/machines, is a file (unless on something like an NFS mount)
an option here?
