I would respectfully say fix it to act like its documentation.

That would change its long-standing behavior in incompatible ways, so
I don't think we can do that.

I respectfully disagree. The current behavior is both undocumented and dangerous.

And make reaching into the dark corners of your document that you are
not aware of and changing words ... into a non-default bonus feature...
or move it into M-x dissociated-press.

I'm okay with making this behavior optional, but it will have to be on
by default, for backward compatibility.

Is it really that important in this case? We're allowed to change the defaults from time to time.

And having C-M-i (bound to completion-at-point in most other contexts) do something like this is a bad UI.
