It's an idea, not a point. :P My idea is that if someone encounters a password field that's too short and wants an easier-to-remember string of letters (and numbers if you want to mix it up more), then you could still use this approach but just use the first letter of each word. Of course, you'd need a lot more words, but stilll. That's not the entire idea though: you could also make the string of words into a song so that you can remember the first letter of each word. If you decide to add numbers, then you could make those numbers a part of the song at the correct locations in the password.
Yes, everyone who does this will probably feel silly trying to come up with a song, but it's a proven scientific fact that when we make something fun, it's much easier to remember:

It doesn't have to be a song, but I think it would be much easier to do that than anything else. Maybe it's just me, but still.
