Hm, it's an interesting concept. However, I think I prefer a
tree-structure, since it gives an easier overview of your accounts, and
you can easily find accounts even if you don't remember an attribute
value for it.

But when and if I do the gnome-keyring frontend I will definitely keep
your suggestion in mind. Since it's a flat structure anyway it's really
the only sane thing to do :)
