I agree. I think echo should generally be suppressed by screen readers in this case, but the characters spoken as one navigates on a touch screen around a virtual keyboard aren't echo in my view.

I think the spec should provide advice to implementors on these points, but I'm not sure whether it should be normative. Security considerations are of course important.
