As a user this would be fantastic.  Filed

"Only a handful of sites" maybe true in percentage terms relative to the
number of websites that support credit card numbers, but it certainly isn't
true in absolute terms.  My bank account and routing numbers are in a huge
variety of sites, for example all my utilities, credit cards, Paypal and
other payment systems, Amazon, my employer's payroll site, etc.
