I haven't been following this thread (and no doubt will not follow it).  But if
the buffer is `*Completions*' then it is clearest for the doc to say so
explicitly.  Saying "help buffer" or even "some auxilliary buffer helpful to the
user" just muddies the water.  No need to defend that text; just use "buffer
`*Completions*'" or "window `*Completions*'" (depending on the context).
