Sorry, but that is just irrelevant.

Obviously, I _want_ *Completions* to be special-display, or I wouldn't have
provided a recipe that makes it so.

Saying that the problem I describe does not exist if you do not follow the
recipe that shows the problem is, well, a bit of a cop-out, don't you think?

The problem described is a problem with a special-display *Completions* buffer.
It is not a limitation of `special-display-regexps'.  There is nothing
particular that `display-buffer-alist' offers to solve this problem, AFAIK.
What's required is redirecting the *Completions* frame focus to the minibuffer.
