The only meaning of `non-essential' is to give Tramp a hint that we're
in completion. I haven't seen any other use of this variable since it
has been introduced back in 2010.

If you believe this is wrong, then Tramp needs another variable for such
a trigger. As we did agree originally in
<http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnu-emacs/2010-04/msg00371.html>. The
idea to take `non-essential' instead came later from you.
