I support affixation-functions in my small Corfu package, which shows overlay popups like Company. However the result will not be good if the affixation-functions return long suffix strings and are written with the *Completions* buffer in mind.

I guess my problem with it is, with the apparent end goal of flexibility, it ends up targeting only the default completion UI, and the more an alternative UI is different from it, the worse the result can look.

And without semantic information, it fails to take advantage of the additional features the alternative UIs might provide.
