Yes, I suggested that assuming the default Emacs completion.  IMO, a new
buffer is what feels more "natural" in that case.  Emacs handles them
well and users can bury them if needed.

Even if not many people use the default Emacs completion, I think
xref-show-definitions-function should default to something that feels
right for them.  Alternative completion interfaces could easily default
to completing-read if they think the UX would be better.
