Password Strength Indicator is not helpful with Javascript switched off on setup

Description

While setting up a blog in /wp-admin/install.php, a password strength indicator is displayed that needs javascript to be switched on to properly work.

If a user has javascript disabled, the indicator is misleading because for the user it looks like that the entered password is always insecure even if it is secure.
