I can see why one might want this for a mobile device or a laptop. I can see why enterprises would want this. Why would your average person want this on their home computer?

The biggest risk for your average user's home computer is attacks via the internet, against which encryption helps not at all. Even if one has secrets (e.g. financial data) on one's computer, this is overkill. An encrypted directory would solve the problem without compromising performance or risking complete data loss if the password is forgotten.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
