Thanks for the investigative work.

Is it possible then to change the goal of the autofill system? Currently the
goal is to restore the entire state of the form elements, including elements
users cannot see. What if the autofill's goal is to aid users such that they
don't have to re-type data. In that case, we can fulfill the goal by just
restoring user enterable text, and not change hidden element values.

Then it's up to the user to figure out what's right and wrong; at least we
won't change any hidden or submit element values, in such a way that changes
the server's intention and confuses the user.
