I might be mistaken but I don't think we want to remove the
feature.  I agree that your example shows a case where it can
be useful to provide an initial-input, but you have to agree
that this is not a typical use of completing-read.

Better yet.  You could get the same behavior without using
an initial-input: do the switch (from buffer to file or vice-versa)
inside completing-read.
