I basically agreed with your suggestions. 
I think the emblems should have the ability to be bound to a script :
that way it's really flexible.
You can set the defaults as you said, but to be used, most of them must
be reworked by the user [where, how and when is the backup made, which
key do I use to encrypt, etc.]
It's not totally clear to my mind but seems to be a good direction ;-)
