With the original problem fixed, Dmitry came to what can be seen as a
UI deficiency in fido-mode.

Not exactly. There have been several issues discussed in this report, and it's really a problem that the user can't easily input something that completing-read would allow.

A new bug report has arrived since: https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=39407 It is now erroneously marked as fixed because it has been merged with this one. We should undo that.

The proposed workaround (using M-j) is itself problematic since it allows you to input whatever even when a match is required. So there are bug here.

After analysing this with Stefan, we arrived
at the conclusion that it was actually a problem in some longstanding
minibuffer.el workings.

Not exactly. At least, icomplete-mode seems to work okay in both of these respects (please correct me if I'm wrong).

Maybe, Dmitry, we could revert to the earlier proposal with the new
variable and somehow deprecate/discourage use of the one you're
trying to change?  That should be safe and bring all the benefits of
your change, right?

Yes, we can do that. I'll make the new variable private, so we can rid of it quickly on master.
