If I do that, then C-M-i will still cycle/rotate after completing say,
'/emacs/sr' to '/emacs/src', which means that
completion-all-sorted-completions, used by the prospects, listing is
still forcibly cached by minibuffer-force-complete.

The reason it shouldn't be, IMO, is that the result is I will now see
'{src | libsrc}' as candidates, instead of seeing the files under
emacs/src/.  The problem is really that now I can't know if those are
actual dirs emacs/src/src emacs/src/libsrc.

You could argue that's just my personal preference and the cycling still
makes sense, so I put this new behaviour is a separate command
icomplete-force-complete as a compromise.  But with your technique I
can't implement it properly.
