I recall objections from Richard and Stefan about the unexpected behavior
of C-f at the end of the minibuffer:

With the recent idea from Drew I now think than adding a new general
keybinding `M-.' to every minibuffer (in the next release) to pull
different things (characters, words, file names) is a good general
replacement for this feature.
