Sure, we'll hold on to your passwords for ya

LastPass, the password storage service, says that all encryption occurs on my computer, so that the only way to see the passwords is with my encryption key. Is there a way for someone to prove this, or do we have to take them at their word? If it's the latter, does the incentive for LastPass to tell the truth outweigh the incentive for the alternative?

Not that I find the service particularly suspect, I was just wondering if it were easy or at least possible for someone to just claim host-proof hosting.
And if the answer is no, then a secondary question would be, why don't google and banks do this?
