Modulo the point that Dave just raised (which deserves its own thread), 
that's basically it, yes.

Presuming you're talking about the WHATWG forms autofill behavior, it 
already does differ. Looking at the procedure in section of 
that spec, step 6 has the user modifying fields (potentially multiple 
times), while substep 5 of step 7 places the resulting value in the form 
exactly once. The calling page never sees any intermediate data that the 
user entered and then changed their mind about.
