That seems out of context to me.  Maybe the link to the Completion node
in in the File Name Completion node could be changed to Reading File Names:

 @node File Name Completion
 @subsection File Name Completion
 @cindex file name completion subroutines
 @cindex completion, file name

   This section describes low-level subroutines for completing a file
 name.  For higher level functions, see @ref{Reading File Names}.

That seems like a good suggestion to me.
