OK, well, that is more of a snippet expansion feature
than autocompletion to my mind. With autocompletion I
mean, say that you want to search for "injury" - when
you type "inj" "injustice" appears. I can be even worse
with a whole list of suggestions (I take it based on a
word list and/or user behavior/probability theory).
That's just disruptive to me - I know what I want to
type, so let me just type it with no visual noise or
"injustices" ever entering my brain.

No, I can see the benefit of that if you are a LaTeX
professional or do it often. In my case it wouldn't be
such a gain because I seldom use LaTeX and when I do it
is for big, "slow" projects. I don't mind taking the
extra time thinking and typing. For a shell language
like Perl or zsh or Python perhaps something like that
would appeal to me, I don't know. (I'm very fond of
typing.)

It is a bit difficult following those scenarios to me
but that sounds useful, yes.
