Off the top of my head, I'd have major security concerns around this
because essentially this makes it very easy for an adversary to
destroy all data on a system.
That said, in appropriate use cases, there's value for a kill switch
or even a dead man's switch (if you don't take some action within
every N hours, the device gets wiped).
