I don't feel comfortable with it either. I expect a user to know what they're doing, or at least be able to read/search, which in this case it looks like you have (some). GPG isn't hard software, and the documentation
is plentiful, so I really don't know why anyone with basic reading comprehension skills would need help beyond someone telling them GPG is what they're looking for.
Crypto is one of those things ... Just because you know the commands to do something doesn't mean you don't have to know how it works. Not knowing what you're doing and how the software works is an almost definite eventuality of data loss.
