Thanks  for the heads up, Joseph! I added my thoughts to the bug, but  
I'll repeat them here:

What a bummer. Terrible news for desktop clients. I hope the security  
enhancing tradeoff is very high because this will be a support burden  
on developers who are supporting users of desktop clients.

It's also worth noting that this will add friction to the process of  
using a remote client with WordPress, and therefore make other systems  
such as Blogger potentially more attractive to such users.
