The key attribute missing from the discussion so far is that the factors be
*different*, from the set of:
  - something you know (password / PIN)
  - something you have (keyfob / OTP generator / chip)
  - something you are (fingerprint / retina scan)

Claiming a passphrase and key are two "factors" is missing the point --
they both come from the same set (a secret which could be cloned).  If you
believe those are two factors then a password alone is 10 factors (one for
each character)! ;)
