But I would add that I prefer not to do that, for a couple of reasons.  One is
that the same general list of buffer candidates and default value are used for
multiple commands, not just the command bound to `C-x k'.  And while it is true
that I never want to kill the minibuffer buffer, that does not mean that I never
want to do some other operation using it.

Anyway, I'm sure you get the point: the buffer that I would expect to be
(current-buffer) here is the buffer in which I invoked `C-x k' (or whatever) -
not " *Minibuf-0*.  The latter does not make much sense to me.

And I think (still, so far) that that is the case because (somehow) the
minibuffer frame got _selected_, and did not just have its input focus
redirected to it.  And I think, a priori, that is not TRT.
