 Replying to [comment:38 Clorith]:
 > I'm not a fan of the markup here, to reach the button to toggle
 visibility one would then have to navigate backwards, and would also be
 exposed to a potentially contextless "Show" before even being presented
 with the input.

 I agree with @Clorith.
 UI controls need to make sense also when read out of context. A
 contextless "Show" would be the equivalent of a "Read more" link that
 doesn't specify the "what".

 Re: the order: many users experience the content in a linearized way.
 Keyboard users, screen reader users, etc. The order of elements needs to
 be logical: first the "what", and then the actions related to the "what"

 The option 2 on comment:34 is the only one that satisfies these needs.

 Also, looking at [attachment:"48222.5.diff"] :
 - there's a missing semicolon in `wp-login.php` at line 968 which throws a
 PHPCS error: `<?php _e( 'Hide' ) ?>`
 - the CSS class `button-secondary` is deprecated and can be removed: it's
 a pre-existing issue but since we're here... See [38672].
