A style can't activate minor modes: a style is a symbol
designating a couple of methods for matching patterns to
possible completions.  The preferred style is indicated by
the user, a minor mode or even by the completion table

It's true that something like fido-mode could activate the
variable or minor mode that i think Eli is proposing, the
same way it activates the flex style and other variables.
Emacs -Q + M-x fido-mode would then produce a familiar flex
experience.  But it would be a terrible experience for users
who have loaded themes designed to make flex look good on
modes other than fido-mode.

So I don't think it's an excellent solution.
