Agreed.  But Ido users presumably do not need Icomplete anyway.  It is non-Ido
users that we should be concerned about for Icomplete.

Yes, but without "ido" in the name.  It is about enabling keys (any keys) for
Icomplete.  It is not about enabling Ido keys for Icomplete.

The keys to use by default can be whatever you like, but they should be specific
to Icomplete (i.e., in its own, independent keymap, as now).

I.e., even if the keys used by default are identical to those used in Ido by
default, there should be no other connection.  Since users will be free to
change them in either place separately, the option name should be unrelated to
