How about a simple form-field extension which
encrypts some password with timed challenges?

OK, but your point suggests the following rephrasing:

 * a UI which can be imitated by malicious sites.

Although they are not closely related, but we cannot completely
ignore the UI issues . I think that protocol designs
should, in some extent, consider how such UI is to be provided
(especially when and how they are kicked in). How about it?
