  I doubt the password role is all set in reality. We have concerns about it.
    
    There is no password role in ARIA 1.1. Regarding HTML password, browsers have introduced ways for people to view password for auto completes by opening a persons browser and viewing the password value. This is new in the past few years.
    
    Really, what is needed is for the security people to engineer a replacement for passwords longer term. They are also poor for people with cognitive impairments and the aging. You and I have discussed this in the past. I spoke with Leonie about this yesterday and she agrees that the world would benefit from new authentication mechanisms. I will also be reaching out to Wendy too. 
    
    Cheers,
    Rich

  Also, we're going to open an issue on HTML passwords in 5.2, if APA / Rich  
  don't.
