That's fine, but I don't think it should be the only possibility.  We
should also provide a special key binding just for ffap, and if
possible also an explicit prompt or tooltip for it.

The reason is that I think we already have too many unintuitive
features in minibuffer prompts, that may be working well for Emacs
veterans, but are entirely concealed (by virtue of their unintuitive
behavior) from the rest.  `M-n' is one such unintuitive feature.
