It's a nice feature, but it's not consistent with the rest of Emacs, and
it's not the default completion type of Bash, so I think it will confuse
people.  IMHO, in Shell-mode you should have the same interface as in a
regular terminal.

And there are tons of features in Emacs that you discover by reading
the docs, not because they are activated by default.
