No, I don't think that putting a password in the profile is a good idea.
Well, if we send the profile through some encrypted channel or something, 
then I guess it's ok.

But I prefer sending it separately, before we even start talking with 
the backend. Could be part of some initial 5-way handshake. ;)

All this must be carefully thought, we are entering the dangerous zone ...
