Such a poll will not be useful.  While tweaks that can be made to the
behavior of the partial completion methods, such as making it treat
hidden buffers better (Bug#9598), such tweaks hardly require a poll.

As for the outright removal of partial completion, I disagree with such
a change; since its introduction in Emacs 23, it has proven to be a
useful feature that does the right thing in almost all circumstances.
It's easy for those who disagree with this feature to disable it.
