Its not 'our' specification. We are using libpwquality, which was written by the
security team, and takes its criteria from /etc/login.defs.
In some situations a 'quality password' should be preferred
(and maybe even obligatory) but if a home user wants to use
a simple password it's her/his choice at her/his own risk and
the 'login manager' should only "advice" not hinder.
