Remembering your email, address, and name are not cognitive tests. This is suggested by ...

The common identifiers name, e-mail, and phone number are not considered cognitive function tests as they are personal to the user and consistent across websites;

On the call today  we wanted to respond as follows:

COGA: Remembering your email, address, and name are tests of  cognitive ability.  In fact they are just the type of test in a MCI mini mental test. They may be allowed for authentication as they can be copy pasted from a notepad , or filled in automatically by autocomplete.

Any objections?
