Why should we only look at string.h?  That'd be akin to looking at a
single Lisp package.

That's not what was proposed.  What was proposed is to use "C-h f"
completion (or any other completion) as replacement for dedicated
documentation-search features.  If you want to compare that with a
modern standard C library, try "i mem TAB" in the glibc manual: you
will see at least 2 different families of functions not really related
to one another.  Or try "i w TAB" for an even larger variety.

ELisp is so much larger than a standard C library, though.
