In addition to the Australian banks I listed, I went through a bunch of 
Norwegian banks and found that many of them also seem to rely on this.

There were a few others as well, but they all either used 
autocomplete="off" on the input elements in addition to using it on the 
form element, or didn't use autocomplete at all.
