First I thought so too. Just change the shell in passwd but trying I was still asked for a password.
I also read that you can run sshd as a user and then only this user is able to login. And when you give a nopassword in config all should be set. One idea but don't think they did this.

Your totaly right man. Hope they answer this question. Might be some security issue but don't think so. I'll just ask them and report back
Thanks for your answers
