I guess that would be OK.  Please M-x report-emacs-bug requesting this
as a new feature, to see what other developers think about it (and so
it's not forgotten until the trunk is unfrozen).

I think M-: would also benefit from changing its "C-u means to insert at
point" to "C-u means to stash in the kill-ring".  Tho, if we could find
a generic way to "get the message from this command and stash it in the
kill-ring" it might be even better.

Yup, one of the reasons why Ido will never be the default completion UI.
