I understand your point, but i believe you can drive it to your needings, without lose a customer. If you want to integrate with last pass, for example, just keep the inputs you need and creating only one to use as honeypot (phone for example, i dont know), which is hidden, not required and not used by anything. One single input is enough to catch some spammers : )

Then LastPass will fill the invisible field, especially after the lengths you went through to make them hidden in a special way, not the conventional way.
It's basically the same thing as your bots 😄

so, what i mean is to you to use names that lastpass didnt use or adapt the core ideia on the post to your needings. last pass will not fill your entire form, and you can configure autofill on lastpass or use flags from their api like 'data-lpignore' which will tell the lastpass to not fill some fields. however, hope this to be useful to someone.
