Yes.  But when I now try your earlier example

S-M-up M-x ffap RET RET

with emacs -Q, after the S-M-up the *scratch* window is just split.
What am I missing?

Can you give an example of a sequence of events how this should work
in practice and which scenario it is supposed to avoid?  The term
"next command" is not clear to me here.

And wouldn't it be more intuitive to check the minibuffer depth
instead?  That is, let the lambda succeed to do its job iff the
current value of 'minibuffer-depth' equals the value of
'minibuffer-depth' at the time 'display-buffer-overriding-action' was
set to the lambda.

What's bad about that?  What else do you want the window to show?  If
the window got reused, it's natural to show the buffer it showed
previously.  If the window was created anew, it's the most natural
thing to delete it when its buffer gets killed.  If we want to change
that, we can add an option.  But the way you do it, you completely
mess up the semantics of the 'quit-restore' mechanism by faking its

As long as it does not end up calling 'display-buffer', yes.
