I think it would be better in the minibuffer to reproduce
the default behavior of these keys in an ordinary Emacs buffer.
Typing <down> in the middle of the last line (that doesn't end
with a newline) moves point to the end of the line.  This is similar
to Firefox's behavior.

However, typing <up> in the middle of the first line in an ordinary
Emacs buffer doesn't move point to the beginning of the first line.
I don't know why do we have such inconsistency and whether we should
reproduce it in the minibuffer?
