There are two different issues here: accessing the completion values,
and accessing the default values supplied explicitly via the `default'
argument of the minibuffer reading functions.  So please make this
distinction when discussing them.  These are two different sets of
values (though, one is a subset of another).

1. a list of all possible completions.  There are many packages that
provide key bindings for accessing next/previous completion items.
AFAIK, most popular key pairs are [left]/[right], C-s/C-r, TAB/M-TAB.
You seem to be advocating for unified key bindings for these packages.

2. a list of default values.  The most natural key to access a list of
default values is M-n.  It could work like M-p for a list of history
values, but in the opposite direction.
