Designate fields as Autofill Disabled

We have numerous times seen forms with hidden fields with Autofill enabled take in the cookied value instead of the newly requested value.  I'd like to see hidden fields with Autofill disabled by default or, otherwise, designate fields as those where Autofill should be off by default.

You can specify that an individual field in a form should have pre-fill disabled. You can also specify that an entire form should have pre-fill disabled or if the entire subscription should have pre-fill disabled.

This isn't what I mean though. 

Fields like name, address and email are unlikely to change so whenever they show up they could be autopopulated.

Questions like timing or readiness to buy will change and could be designated as never auto-populating. 

Setting things individually in forms is a pain and one missed field can mess up all data.

I'm interested in this use case but describe it better so I understand. If I have a form with 6 fields, you can make 3 of them pre-fill disabled if you'd like. What would the new feature allow you to do differently?

When you create a field type of HIDDEN, it would be nice to have it automatically default to not prefill. 

Let's say that I put a program name on my forms in the hidden fields.  If I leave pre-fill on it will never update with the default value I put in pre-fill, it will populate whatever is in my cookie. Potentially, years later a person can fill out a form and Marketo will pick up a cookied value instead of the value I want to force populate.

Ok, so this idea is just to say

-When adding a hidden field to a form, default to "Form Pre-fill = disabled"?

You're not saying there is missing functionality, you just think it's easy to forget to disable it?

Yes.
