As a former Ivy user who went back to icomplete and is now following
this thread with a lot of attention, my vote also goes for C-n/C-p for
next/previous candidate selection, and M-n/M-p for history navigation.
(Actually, I wouldn't mind C-n/C-p in regular (non-vertical) icomplete;
C-. is not super-ergonomic on AZERTY. I liked C-M-i, but it's been
decommissioned in Emacs 27…)
