Platform encryption for managed package fields

Administration & Sharing

There are many managed packages on Appexchange. Platform Encryption is a fantastic new feature but its limited to NEW custom fields and only some standard fields. This means that all managed packages and their fields cannot be protected using Platform Encryption which seems to be a significant oversight.

Please provide the Platform Encryption that allows Adminsitrators to enable managed package fields in a subscriber org to be encrypted.
