Proposed text:

Authors SHOULD limit the use of the password role to single-line
elements which are editable. Authors MAY use the password role on
elements which are not currently editable due to application-specific
conditions. However, in that instance, authors MUST indicate that the
element is read only by setting aria-readonly to true or using the
appropriate native host language attribute. User agents MUST ignore the
password role when it is applied to elements which are neither editable
nor explicitly marked as read only.
