I'd recommend to append new styles, or at least keep the basic style
(there's a mail on this list or maybe help-gnus-emacs and a bug report
about tramp completion not kicking in with some completion-styles).

Have a look at `completion-category-overrides' which allows you to use
different styles depending on what you complete.  For example, IMHO
initials completion is awesome for completing long filenames when you
already know what file you want to complete but is not very useful for
buffer names.  (FWIW, I haven't found a category where flex would be
useful to me.  It matches far too much for my personal preference so
that it never speeds up completion for me.)
