1Password has a ton of pull and can shift the momentum in this space because of how much momentum you've built up thanks to your singular focus on building a fantastic product. Just look at how many people jumped at adding 1Password support on iOS when you released the 1Password App Extension. I think you could use this position to improve the situation around managing software licenses.
It would be great if you defined a format (JSON, XML or otherwise) that has all the pertinent non-binary info around a software license. When I purchase a piece of software and I receive the email or a link is revealed that has my license key it would be awesome to have access to a .licenseinfo file which I can import into 1Password that has all the details the software vendor might care to populate for me. For some it might just be the key. But for others it might be purchase date, price, version etc. Maybe there is even a way to include a binary field for vendors which have a proprietary, binary license file format.
I love 1Password and try to keep it up to date but it is tedious to manually fill out Software License info and I find myself defaulting to leaving it in mail and searching for it if I ever need it again. I install clean every year when a new version of OS X comes out and I remember once again what a pain it is. I'd love to see AgileBits alleviate that pain just as you have for my password pain.
