I think he means that the minibuffer would look like this:

    PROMPT INPUT                                                HELP

If INPUT gets long enough to reach HELP, I hope the input area would wrap as
it does now, leaving HELP fixed in place. This would be true no matter the
screen width.

In practice, INPUT should be short enough that adding 10 characters of HELP
would not impact anyone, not even at <80 columns wide.
