Scrivener shouldn't be handling this. If you value your privacy enough to want password protection, you should value it enough to use software whose primary purpose is data security.

No, it's actually not. You'd have to password protect an entire directory structure, not just an individual file, potentially including aliased research files located outside the project folder, plus all of Scrivener's own automatic backups. But you'd have to protect the individual files in that structure, too, otherwise backups taken by other software might include unprotected copies of the individual files. And the mechanism would have to be robust enough to work (again, for the entire folder structure) across multiple computers and platforms, while not impeding Scrivener's functionality or performance in any way.
