Not really. The API is perfect fine for solving the current issues we have
with filling out forms on web pages. What I was implying was, I wanted the
API to go even further and offer the ability to provide a list of potential
completion items in a popup menu when the user fills out non-login related
forms. That was what I was suggesting above. However, I realized that doing
such things is probably outside the scope of the browser engine especially
since it is something that could be accomplished on the client side.
