Again, you miss the point. The point isn't separate accounts. The point is, you have a user account, say "JoeCool", and a password, say "12345". Your system allows Joe, when logged in under that password, to create a secondary password, 67890 which, when logged in with, only allows limited access. Joe can then give "67890" as a password a third-party application, which will then have only limited access. If the application misbehaves, Joe can remove the "67890" password, thus locking out the malicious application while keeping his primary password secure, along with any other secondary passwords he's generated for other applications. That's the system being described and that's a system which would avoid a heck of a lot of headache.
And I'd appreciate not being called names by someone who hasn't even taken the time to understand what's being said.
