        As I commented already in the "Enable Transparent Data Encryption" feature too, any decision at this point is way better than no decision.

        The built-in T-SQL encryptbykey() and decryptbtkeyautocert() functions (including also decryptByKeyAutocert/DecryptdByKeyAutoAsymKey/DecryptByPassPhrase) are used by applications that need to store highly sensitive information.

        We have an application that indeed uses these mechanisms to store highly sensitive information; we have some small customers that would benefit from cloud-based deployments. We cannot deploy all our features to SQL Azure without this functionality.
