Eh

If someone explicitly tells their browser to fill in all the visible fields on a phishing site, they would have done exactly the same if any hidden fields were visible anyway. By the time you've suckered someone in to visiting a fake site and giving it all their details, they're not suddenly going to baulk just because it asks for their date of birth as well.
