I'd think that depends on your use case.  If you're encrypting removable 
drives and then shipping them elsewhere, such as for off-site backup, 
and you trust the physical security for the computer a lot more than you 
trust the courier and/or storage site....

Of course, I would agree that that's probably not what the OP has in 
mind.  :-)
