I don't see any problem with that, as long as his private gpg-key is not
also up there in the cloud and he is using a reasonably secure key. And
keeps his key save. But that's the SPOF of pass anyway.
The only problem I see might be privacy implications since other people
can publicly see what for sites he is using, if he names his passwords
accordingly. Maybe the user should invest in a github subscription to be
able to create a private repository.
