Yes, "with or without ido keybindings", icomplete-mode is a standalone feature
separate from ido keybindings.  As the node (info "(emacs) Minor Modes") says:

   * Icomplete mode displays an indication of available completions when
     you are in the minibuffer and completion is active.  *Note
     Completion Options::.

and also (info "(emacs) Completion Options"):

     Icomplete mode presents a constantly-updated display that tells you
  what completions are available for the text you've entered so far.

  ;; Prospective completions are concisely indicated within the
  ;; minibuffer itself, with each successive keystroke.

that makes it work like `ido', why not give it a new name like
