    2. My `customize-apropos', `customize-apropos-faces',
    `customize-apropos-groups', `customize-apropos-options', and
    `repeat-complex-command' all use `completing-read' to read the regexp. Note
    that using completion means not only that you can use regexp matching but
    also that you can sort the candidates in different ways (important for
    cycling order).

I don't understand why it makes sense to do completion on regexps.
Would you please explain?
