It fools people into believing there is a useful completion when there
in fact is none. What use is for example symbol completion in
css-mode, in php-mode etc?

It is better to tell the truth. Bind it to there-is-no-completion-here
(in a logic sense of course) in global map. Bind it to something
useful in major modes.
