What do you mean by "there"? If you mean on `minibuffer-setup-hook', then
please reread the above. I am saying that I cannot do there the different
things that I do now in various functions (`completing-read',
`read-file-name',...) on `minibuffer-setup-hook' instead.

I gave concrete examples for `completing-read' and pointed to the code for
the others as well. Each of the functions has different additional things
added, which cannot be done on `minibuffer-setup-hook'. Initializations etc.
that are appropriate for only one function (e.g. `completing-read') cannot
be put on a hook that is run when every function activates the minibuffer.
