They could lock you out permenently, but a total lockout was probably deemed too inconvenient. The compromise appears to have been to add a longer delay (5-10 seconds) if you try enough incorrect passwords, also 1980's era standard practice, and still in there today.

Like you said, simple, but effective, but only at frustrating brute force cracking. Nobody even tries that anymore, but if they took it out, somebody probably would Smile | :)
We can program with only 1's, but if all you've got are zeros, you've got nothing.
