    M-n and M-p are for the history list. M-n already pulls the default value
    into the minibuffer and adds it (possibly edited) to the history list. This
    is enough connection between the two.

    In this case, you seem to want the default value to be the _previous_
    history value (so that empty input "searches the same thing again").

Yes, that's what the default is now.

    means that M-n, M-p, and empty input will all do more or less the same
    thing: use the last (i.e. previous) history value.

Each of them follows a convention.  In this case, all three conventions

    However, you might consider giving access to a list of "default values"
    (more than just 1 or 2) via _different_ keys from M-n and M-p - the arrow
    keys, for instance.

Finding other keys would be difficult.
