Relevance to input, for example.

But how will we determine it, you will ask? For instance, by seeing
where the search words are in the each listed name. If they are close to
the beginning, assign higher scores.
You are still thinking about what our fuzzy completion does.  That's
not how you get scores that are relevant for the user, because how
close the hit is to what the user typed is mostly irrelevant.

It's rarely 100% irrelevant. Or else that would mean we have some nonsensical names.

But apparently you have some other algorithm in mind. Though I don't know what it is.
