I don't think so. As explained in the bug thread, the problem for me is
that custom text properties (specifically mouse-face in my case) added
to the completion annotations are clobbered. I don't care about the face
of the completion items (although I'd argue they should respect user
additions as well). The argument you raised against not clobbering the
annotations additions and thus allowing face like mouse-face for them
was that the completions code would get confused, because that property
is used to delimit completion items. This argument would disappear if
that was fixed and a separate (non-face) property was used instead.
