Comment (by peterwilsoncc):

 > I also omitted autocomplete on the 'lost password' form, which also
 accepts either username or email. For the lost password, I'm less certain
 what would be ideal.

 My instinct is `username` but if you could ask for advice is accessibility
 circles that would be lovely.

 I did some quick testing and it seems to be working as expected.

 #43886 is related but for fields that need the new-password autocomplete
