Thanks for putting this together.  I think we should reference Section 7<https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/#input-purposes> of the WCAG standard  which defines the purposes.  While it could be used for all autocomplete values in HTML it’s aimed at the ones in our list – so we might want to clarify that first line.

I would also restate “The objective of this technique is to make form fields easier to fill out and understand.” To something like “The objective of this technique is to make form fields easier to understand with an added benefit of making them easier to fill out” since the focus on the SC is on input purpose to help identify the fields.

There are also some typos.

  *   Familiar
  *   Explicitly
