Once one has left the immediate locus of the `comint-*' callers it is
good to know
what/where these gals do their business.

OK. It makes sense to leave from for future changes.
But, there is third party code that uses this feature:
Their users may deserve some consideration...

`slime-maybe-complete-as-filename'
 `-> `comint-replace-by-expanded-filename'
   `-> `comint-dynamic-complete-filename'
     `-> `comint-dynamic-complete-as-filename'
       `-> `comint-dynamic-list-filename-completions'
         `-> `comint-dynamic-list-completions'

Do an occur for "slime-complete-*" in slime.el
Also, take a look at `slime-completions-buffer-name'.

I'm sure there are other non-core libs which make similar use of `comint-*'...
