FM 13: Is there still a need for field-level encryption plugins?

Is there still a need for field-level encryption plugins now that we can encrypt an entire .fmp12 file in FileMaker 13?

 

Sky Dancer Studios, the makers of the Blowfish and Windows AES plugins, have explicitly deemed their plugins useless with the release of 13.

 

 

NOTE: With the new FileMaker 13 Pro Advanced, you no longer need to use plugins for encryption! These plugins are still provided here for users of previous versions of FileMaker.

 

Part of me feels there's still a need for field-level encryption beyond the file-level encryption, but I'm unsure at this point. I'd love feedback on how to think through this problem. Is file-level encryption enough?
