 > Wondering if should namespace into wp global to make object
 wp.passwords? Also, maybe move to wp-util instead of user-profile.js? Will
 plugins/themes be able to leverage the password generator?

 Namespacing it sounds good. However moving it to wp-util.js doesn't seem
 right. Currently user-profile.js requires password-strength-meter.js which
 loads zxcvbn.min.js which is a 683KB minified JS file. There is no way we
 are going to load that "globally" :)

 Perhaps better to add the password checking/generating functions to
 `wp.passwordStrength` in password-strength-meter.js? Then we can enqueue
 that file everywhere a password can be typed. I know the names aren't that
 good. We could probably rename the file, but should keep the script-loader
 "handle" name for back-commpat.
