Right now, you're already arguing minute details here, how it would
work, and insisting that it should be different from all existing
completion interfaces available for Emacs. Don't be surprised to see

The hard technical part would be to draw the tooltip in the right place
above the frame, make it fast, and offer a good Elisp interface. Then
the code, of which there's a lot, can integrate it.
