bug#8897: `completion--insert-strings' clobbers user-added text properti

It is possible to bind `completion-annotate-function' to add custom
annotations, which is great. Unfortunately, the `face' and `mouse-face'
text properties added by such a function are then unconditionally
overwritten by `completion--insert-strings'.

In my particular case I define annotations as buttons (which display
even more detail about a completion value upon activation), so a visual
indication of clickability is very important for me.

I wonder if something like the patch below, which fixes the problem for
me, could be applied?
