When creating an addon which deals with sensitive data, it would be nice if there was a way to specify access restriction at the option group level.

For example, if I am creating an addon which connects to a third party API, and the API access details are saved through options, any third party unscrupulous addon can access that data.

I realize this will perhaps not affect the masses, but it would be a nice to have access restrictions for options data accessible through code. Sure we could have sensitive data saved in a file instead of options but it's not user-friendly.
