I see your point, but I think the number of years we had this has
greater weight.

This can be an argument for choosing between the ways to fix something, but not to just give up.

It's not like an API stability argument, no third-party Lisp code will break after this change.

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

Based on only one complaint, after all these years?  I don't think so.

That's a valid rebuke, but I imagine the total number of users is not very high either. Especially of those who rely on the possibility of auto-correcting far-away words.

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

That ship has sailed a long time ago, so again long-time practice

IMO, we must maintain stable UI and defaults in Emacs, after so many

What about improving the UI? It's not like it has reached perfection at any time.

If stability to such high degree is the goal, Emacs will more likely fade away together with the current generations of its users.
