Re: It's not a bug, it's a feature!
Yes, I'm aware of how this sort of thing works in other OSes. That's all besides the point.
I care about security, which is why I like the compartmentalizing access to my "secure" data. I also care about balancing security with ease of use. Having a "real" screen lock reduces ease of use more than it enhances security, for me. I also tend not to keep "important" stuff on the phone - for little I did, I had a strong password on my credential storage (which only had my wifi credentials in it) and have a strong password on 1Password.
FWIW, I'm very aware of the "forgetting to unlock storage" issue you ran into. However, I never had to disable wifi and reboot the phone to handle it. I just simply went into Settings -> Security (or whatever it was -> Credential Storage, and it asked me for my password. Easy peasy. Before I discovered that, I just waited for the wifi connection to stop trying to connect automatically and tell it to connect myself - it then asked me for the credentials password. Took a minute, was annoying, but didn't require the level of monkeying you went through.
