Just that you focus on "list the completion options", whereas usually
I'm more interested in "insert the common part of all the possible
completions that you can get from the text I already typed".

But to some extent it's true that the completion listing is the trickier
point left over now (Emacs-23's new completion code was specifically
designed to better address the "do the completion" part, and it's one of
the reason why I want to get most other completion code to use that new
code, so as to benefit from things like partial-completion).

It's not stupid, but the question is how/where to put the hooks that
allow the particular UI backend to setup such bindings.  For minibuffer
completion, we have minibuffer-local-completion-map, but for in-buffer
completion we have no such thing (standard in-buffer completion like
lisp-complete-symbol doesn't use a keymap).
