As noted on GitHub, I'd also add that the current SC seems to merge two 
quite distinct concepts (individual authentication and CAPTCHA-type 
challenges). These have different needs and potential solutions, and I 
feel they should therefore be split into separate SCs (which may or may 
not share common techniques).
