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.
