It is plausible that "Correct Horse Battery Staple" makes it easier to 
enter high entropy pass phrases, and I am inclined to believe it, but 
such pass phrases are longer than base 32 or base 64 passphrases, hence 
more opportunities to get it wrong, and I would like to see some UI 
testing for passphrases of the same entropy.
