Unintuitive naming in settings dialogue

Description

In the settings dialogue at https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/XXX/account we have tghe password change fields. However, they are not named "change password" or "enter new password" or the like, but just "password".

I would suggest to add a sentence like "Please enter your new password if you want to change it" above the input fields, or rename the field labels "Enter new password" and "Confirm new password".

German locale translation of the strings is at rails/config/locales/de.yml#L1699

This has recently caused confusion for at least one user (https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/19869/how-to-change-or-renew-the-osm-password).
