Yes.

No

To e.g "/ssh:" which is an incomplete address 
and hang indefinitely.
Just like when you do C-x C-f and enter in prompt /ssh: and press RET.

External libraries like anything create completion modes that replace
most completing-read's.
So the completing-read that use all-completions are ok, but the one that
use try-completion are usable only in a Vanilla emacs environment.

No i say completion in Emacs is made differently so it is acceptable,
though it should not hang like described above.
(Here i display in buffer "Invalid tramp file name" and wait user enter
something correct before trying to connect with tramp to this invalid
name).

What i was suggesting is just a different implementation that would
work more safely in all case.
It's what i did in anything except for hostname completion which is not
done yet. (see precedents posts).
