Well, yeah, we're discussing possible technical solutions. Packaging for end users is important, yes, but premature at this point. But know that we do keep in mind that it needs to be possible in the end.

For example:

> Where will a user export it to?

For the smoothest user experience, the browser could just sync it along with the user's other preferences, if the browser has cloud sync features. Or it could be exported as a textual "key phrase" to print or write down on paper just like the private key in @MeydanOzeri's proposal. Or any number of other possibilities, as the keys in question don't need to be kept secret.
