Fair enough, but the data is decrypted after it emerges from the networking stack, before it gets written to the disk. If you aren't willing to trust the provider to keep prying eyes away from their disks, are you willing to trust that they can keep them away completely? It will discourage the casual snooper, but I wouldn't rely on it to stop a determined attack if your data is worth stealing.
