He believes that many people use an insecure master password to protect their collection. “The way they’re constructed discourages the use of a strong password because you’re constantly having to type it in—also on a mobile device in many cases.”

I believe that the Yubikey can hold a 64 character static password (containing numbers, small and large letters, and a special character). That's a pretty strong password all within itself. However, one can and should make it even stronger by simply adding a short phrase or keystroke sequence to the beginning or the end of the static-yubikey-password.
