Subject: Password-Manager Friendly (PMF) semantic markup

First presented by Max Spencer at #passwords14 in Trondheim, I am still
a fan of this idea.

Basically implementing some stuff into HTML that tells any password
manager what minimum/maximum/restrictions etc a site has for passwords,
allowing a password manager to automatically generate the best possible
password without any additional user interaction or error handling.

"All we need" is:
- A standard
- Get major browsers to support the standard
- Get major password managers to support it
- Make OWASP adopt it
- Have all websites in the world (preferably) adopt it for the greater good

Easy. No where do we begin?

Best regards,
