comment Are there state-of-the-art techniques or theory specifically for attacking passphrases over passwords?
Indeed. There could be some tweaks to Markov models expressly to fit this problem. For instance generating longer phrases internally but leaving out small grammatical stopwords. But it's such a large area it would be hard to know where to focus without a resource of leaked/hacked passphrases to see what people really choose in practice.

comment Should passwords be truly random?
Another perspective would be that a truly random password would be an implementation of a "cryptovariable" (or whatever).
