Years of using Emacs with its superb documentation and elaborate

give that up when I work on Emacs!  And I'm astonished to hear that
people don't_want_  the documentation we provide and the help commands
to go with it, and are willing to settle for API completion!

The main reason the discussion even went that way is because instead of acknowledging that the user's scenario is valid and the request is reasonable (that code completion and describe-function's completion will work easier and faster if function names are more predictable), you responded with the recommendations to "just use manual".

Whereas the manual provides a different workflow and doesn't cover all cases. For instance, it only covers the functions in the core. Maybe not even all of them. Whereas the aforementioned features work uniformly for all functions, no matter where defined or by whom.
