Assuming that I'm reading this correctly, and that, in essence, reliance 
on a password manager (and not preventing it from auto-filling the 
necessary fields) is an acceptable exception/way to pass, then +1

Incidentally, the understanding document seems to still slightly mix up 
the concepts of authentication (who a user is, specifically) with that 
of a captcha (discerning whether or not the person filling in the form 
is a human or a bot). These are separate concerns, and the latter needs 
to be tackled separately (as captchas are not just a problem in 
authentication scenarios, and can't be tackled using password managers 
or similar either).
