Not sure how that makes any difference?
If the Police have a search warrant for your shed, the Americans make you unlock the shed while the UK system forces you to hand over your house keys.
The American system makes you hand over the information they want, the UK approach give more carte blanche for a fishing expedition. It's especially important when you consider that most people do not use completely independent passwords for everything, even when they might think they do.
