One of the main use cases for turning off autocomplete is to disable the saving of sensitive or irrelevant information. If the user is filling in an address or cc num it's likely they have the opportunity to save that on other sites.

Looking at https://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Autocompletetype
I see credit cards has it's own subtype, this would allow some 
granularity (possibly tied to the security/privacy preferences of the 
user set in the browser).

Then there is this http://blog.alexmaccaw.com/requestautocomplete
(hmm, that name/email in the example image there looks very familiar... :P )

Now that is a very good incentive to actually use autocomplete, it saves 
me from having to start typing into every fields to trigger the 
autocomplete popuplist.
