You can already type 'sub/dir' and press TAB to see it completed. Especially if it's unique.

project-occur could operate only on visited project files
(but I doubt if this is useful).  project-rgrep is much more needed
to operate like rgrep, but without asking for file names and root directory.

We already have project-find-regexp. Why bother?

"hulahoop" :)

I don't mind.

Actually I think the existing names are already good enough: "multifile"
for the package that supports multifile operations,

It's not the only package that "supports multifile operations". xref does it as well (and arguably better), and also occur and grep, as some examples.

and "project"
for UI that operates on project files.

project is not a UI, it uses one of the other packages for UIs.
