I haven't followed the discussion, so I might be off, but I think what
is described above is something you can get simply by passing the
appropriate value for `mustmatch` to `completing-read` and friends
(including `read-file-name`).

Probably not: most third-party completion functions out there don't support any non-nil values of that argument other than t (or treat them like t).

corfu and vertico support 'confirm', but they're probably not popular enough yet to justify that choice.

And suppose we chose to use 'confirm', would a neutral prompt "Confirm" without clarification, as opposed to something like "File does not exist; Create?", be our best choice?
