Here's my question:
given that we want (by default) scroll-other-window to scroll the
*Completions* buffer when called from the minibuffer and *Completions*
has been displayed, how else would you implement this in a way that
also satisfies your needs?

IOW send us some kind of patch to the Emacs code that does not change
the current default behavior, but makes it flexible in the way
you expect.
