I thing checking the password in order to prevent the use of a
dictionary word is excessive (it's true the password is important, but
-in a desktop location- sometimes the security isn't a issue), but
looking for a limited set of words, like "password" in all language,
"qwerty", and so on...

Unsecure passwords reported as acceptable as well as strong ones
Status in “gnome-control-center” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
When you set the password during the installation or also when you
change it via the gnome-control-center you can insert a weak password
(like "123456" or "qwerty" or "abcdef" or "password" itself) without
any alerts, or so on.
The suggestion is a password strength verification that includes the most used passwords (like "1234" or "qwerty") and a dictionary that includes the word password in every language.
A special attention to language like Spanish where "password" is "contraseña", and where is the character "ñ" which can be recognize as a special symbol.
