--- Comment #3 from Thiemo M├Ąttig <thiemo.maet...@wikimedia.de> ---
I have to agree to the reasons given in the comments above. Labels and aliases
should be (more or less) unique. From what I know duplicates are a rare case.
Wouldn't it be bad if we motivate the users to basically copy & paste the same
labels to other items?

Duplicate descriptions do make more sense. Think of all the "Disambiguation
page" descriptions.

Almost everything else uses suggester drop-downs which require the browsers
autocomplete to be disabled.

Please note that we don't actually set autocomplete="off". It simply doesn't
work because the input elements don't have a name.

The following questions need to be discussed: Which input fields should be in
the same "group" for the autocomplete feature? Should a previously typed label
be suggested in other languages? (I think it should.) Should it be restricted
to the labels within the same item? (Avoids duplicates but makes the feature
almost useless.) Should aliases be suggested and if yes, should it be
restricted to the language or item? Does it make sense to use labels as
suggestions for descriptions?
