    1. Text properties are discarded from the minibuffer history items.
       The variable `minibuffer-allow-text-properties' could be used to
       prevent their discarding, but it affects only `read-string',
       but not `read-minibuffer'.

    2. Text properties in history variables are not saved in the
       .emacs.desktop file.

I guess we would need to fix these two.  Do you want to look at how
hard that would be?

    3. When text is copied from some external source to the minibuffer,
       often it has no suitable text properties.

That is not a bug, just "the way things are."  If you copy an * from
elsewhere, it's an ordinary *.
