Here is MS explanation:

I love the "Workarounds for users"
If users typically type HTTP or HTTPS URLs that include user
information in the Address bar, or click links that include user
information in HTTP or HTTPS URLs, you can work around this new
functionality in Internet Explorer in two ways:
. Do not include user information in HTTP or HTTPS URLs. 
. Instruct users not to include their user information when they type
HTTP or HTTPS URLs.

Sort of like telling a doctor that something hurts when you do this...

And the doctor tells you don't do that...
