Frauds. Particularly ones that target E-mail. Banks have learned that
permitting people to migrate money /outside/ one's account is a messy
business. With people's poor choice of passwords and dynamic or arbitrary
allocation of IP addresses, banks will never be relieved by the idea of
permitting what you suggest, even is some benefits are foreseen.
Just my opinion,
