INPUT type="password" elements do not briefly display unmasked (like rest of platform)

SOFTWARE VERSION: as per bug header
Rendering and interaction of the <input type="password"/> fields in the browser
is not the same as the rest of the Maemo platform (as in X11 widget libraries
for general UI).
With the rest of the Maemo platform when you first press your keyboard
selection you briefly see the character (not masked by "*") for a small mount
of time before it is automatically masked into a "*". This allows for the user
to immediately spot a typing mistake (something that is easier to do on a
small/mobile device keyboard).
So this password entry feature would be both useful and consistent (IMHO).
Thanks for reporting.
