It can be argued that forcing users to remember their passwords leads to simple and easily guessable passwords.

Power users will use a password manager anyway. And for normal users, IMHO it's better to let them use their browsers autocomplete instead of "forcing" them to use everywhere 12345.

won't do, as browsers overrule whatever they want to do these days (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12374442/chrome-ignores-autocomplete-off)

I would recommend to implement this feature. Nearly every external security company demands this feature in their pen tests now. It does not need to make sense in the end - they recommend this feature and we have to patch TYPO3 in order achieve it.
