There's been a bit of discussion about this, so here's one more item to 
throw into the stew-pot.

We've all see those forms where the name is pre-filled (cookies, etc), and 
you merely have to supply a password, right?  All well and good, I 
suppose, as it enhances my web experience, etc.

Well, I'm starting to see the opposite: password field filled in, and all 
I have to do is supply, say, my email address...

Am I paranoid enough, yet?  My current browser is Firefox (always updated) 
on a Mac (similarly always updated).
