I understand your concern and I'm sure I'm in a pretty small minority with
this problem. But the more I think about it I can't think of any situation
where you wouldn't want this behaviour. After all minibuffer prompts are for
inputing text that's going _somewhere_ and the prompt isn't going to be going
with it.
