Other than the "non-nil" part on the first line, I still don't know
what's ambiguous about the rest of the current docstring.
Your suggested wording sounds largely incomprehensible to me, so while
it may be better for some, it's clearly not good enough to replace the
current wording.

It's not that icomplete doesn't want an operation to be interrupted,
it's that it doesn't want this operation to disturb the user.
