Sorry for the confusion. I am tired and not thinking good this
evening. Of course, the disconnection you mentioned means we need the
command before the sed later in the instructions when /etc/login.defs
is created.

Perhaps a note there as well?

It does now make the instructions rather disjointed though, with
two different notes about CrackLib in there. Opinions from others
are welcome.
