The initial implementation of this feature was like you described above.
But later I received complaints off-list that convinced me to open
bug#19824 with better implementation to address the inconvenience of
navigating through the multi-line minibuffer history: for backward-compatible
behavior we need every UP in the sequence move to a previous history item.
This can be achieved when UP places the cursor at the top line of a
multi-line history item, ready for going to the next previous item with
successive UP.
