There is the one time pad.

comment $(k, n)$ threshold secret sharing to $(k+k', n + n')$ without reissuing all shares
You second point about $x$ having to be private is really interesting (and really tricky). I never would've though about it (O_O) but I think the trustworthy group fixes that too. I'm not sure though. Anyway, I'm not going to make the $x$s public. But since I was thinking of only updating $y$ if a share was compromised, I'll probably have to rework my recovery protocol. I'll think about it and ask another question if I'm not sure :)

I edited and added a lot of detail. I think that the trustworthy group of shareholders that accept to delete their shares makes it possible.

The parties that I see often can be trusted to delete their own shares (and not compromising them). We can also, if necessary, assume that whenever a share is compromised, I know it.

Not really. But the adversary can only figure out who the people are and then try to find where they hid the key. Why?

comment Recover from compromised shares with Shamir Secret Sharing
Since I use secret sharing to back up a key that I use daily, I totally missed the fact that you need the secret to issue new shares. Thanks for pointing that out :-)
