How would that look, in your opinion?

and only after that consider changes, like the
proposed "namespacing" of APIs, that will allow users to use
completion as a substitute for Help commands.

Namespacing of APIs is a step that should help the users with the current default completion strategy.

It is IMO a bad idea to
flood the completion lists with many dozens of candidates and force
users to wade through them.  I certainly wouldn't call that "progress"
for Emacs.

Is that what fido-mode does? People seem to like it.
