Comment (by redsweater):

 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.
