I have done a fair bit of research on this and a few things to note:

* Chrome does not honor autocomplete=off on the input level.
* But.. "If we encounter an autocomplete attribute that we don't
recognize, we won't try and fill it." ie autocomplete="SkipMePlease" on
the input level.

I hope this helps a few people.
