The effect is the same but they are different. If "." were not there,
ENTER can not open the current directory. Another concern is C-j is a
bit less friendly towards new users.

But your proposal is slightly better for experienced ido users. Maybe we
could make the change you proposed and then advertise C-j more, after
all that is one of the keys users must understand. What do you think?
