Indeed. For the vast majority of web developers, the actual need is

var ciphertxt = ecryptThisStringForBob("hi");

or

var sig = signThisDataForAlice("data");

That's it. A high level API that keeps the details at bay and private key material out of the DOM will be extremely useful.

Totally agree.
Our challenge is to be able to refer to a stored key that 'belongs to the caller'.
