You said "based on correctness".  If the 2-entry alternative
facilitates more correct operation, that's the alternative we should
choose, no?

You elide too much of the previous context, and I cannot afford
reading 2 or 3 previous messages to restore that (and please don't
rely on my memory too much).  So I no longer understand what we are
talking about here.

Including the pattern (what you call "the implicit tag") in the
completion table could serve as context for disambiguating otherwise
similar tag names.  But if you think it's unneeded, I'm not going to
argue.
