If you recall, we discussed this with the security people. The real issue is the secure page and the character echo of the actual rest rendered. The fact that we tell the AT that there is a password should cause them to render the actual text. Otherwise, it is a performance concern to do it all the time.

I see nothing new in Charles post.
