It is by intention. Let's call it "collateral damage because of GNU Emacs".

The Tramp syntax there is different, as you might know. People, who
don't use Tramp, don't want to have it autoloaded when they type "C-x
C-f /myhos TAB". "/myhos" could complete to a local file name as well.

Maybe one could implement different autoload cookies for GNU Emacs and
XEmacs. I am a GNU Emacs user, so I would let this task for a
volunteer with XEmacs background.

Yes, that is the way to go.

I'll provide the patch with Tramp 2.1.13, which is hopefully not so
far from now. It will look different, because of other problems of
autoload. But the functionality shall be there.
