[ same difference ;-) ]

I'm wondering why you think it's a feature.  Could you explain?

The way I see it, it in 99% of the cases it would just work identically
on all displayed completions (sometimes using trivial for all and
sometimes using nontrivial for all), and in the remaining cases it would
use a mix and my natural reaction would likely be "M-x report-emacs-bug".
