It sounds like a good idea, but really, how long before somebody exploits a "hole" in this new OS? I agree that these guys are approaching the problem from a different angle than most, and I hope that they succeed.
As for me, I'll stick with PGP for the time being. The feds are going to waste a hell of a lot of time decrypting my email. Think of the national security implications of me asking my brother (through encrypted email) how his daughter is doing in math class. [}:)]
F*** 'em, if they want to waste their time and my money to gather that kind of "intel".
If there's a hole, then they'll fix it in the next release. That's how these projects go. Lots of thought put into the design, lots of verification, and lots of testing; repeat forever.
However, considering how little information is given on their website, not to mention their distrust of all current protocols, I'm not so sure that they're for real. Their beta release was supposed to have been finished almost a year ago, but there aren't any indications of it (no "download" page), and this also leads me to believe that they haven't updated their website in at least a year either.
