Note also that appropriate user agent behavior with respect to security may depend on the user's context. For instance, hiding typed passwords with asterisks is much less important for someone alone in a room than for someone in a crowded room. Similarly, while unencrypted passwords rendered as synthesized speech should not be broadcast in a crowded room, they may pose no security risk if the user is wearing an earphone.

I think this paragraph confuses the bigger point being made by this section.  Does it really need to be in the document?
