Yes, but some questions, Juri:

* wouldn't any other face, say "underline", serve the same purpose?

* would you not be equally and efficiently informed of such facts if
  completions-common-part were _more_ prominent and
  completions-first-difference was _less_ prominent?

* In completion styles other than "basic", there are many other
  characters, besides the one marked with completions-first-difference,
  that you type to narrow completion further, right?

Do you use mainly the "basic" completion style? I.e. do you customize
