No, that "yucky stuff" is already present at other places in
minibuffer.el.  Your patch didn't make it significantly worse.
It should makes it yet a bit more obvious that a better solution is
called for.

I didn't add a solution to this problem originally because it seemed to
be a lot of trouble, but in the mean time I added the
completion-metadata and completion-extra-properties stuff, so I think it
should be reasonably easy now to use those to implement that
new feature.
