We currently don't do this because clearing the existing highlight on the password field and pressing TAB to shift focus to the next element highlights the password field unexpectedly. This behavior is existent because pressing the TAB key triggers the DOMAutoComplete event[0]. Therefore we cannot currently highlight the password field in the onDOMAutoComplete listener.

See attachment to better understand our approach to highlight the password field on autocomplete.
