Currently completion is performed on a set of all possible values.
In addition to this, completion could be performed on a set of
all previously entered values (history items), or on default items
(a list of the most useful values).  This shows all 3 possibilities:

(completing-read "Prompt: "
                 minibuffer-history nil nil nil

M-n - defaults list, M-p - history list, TAB - completion on history list.

In a normal minibuffer maybe there should be a key to switch between
normal completion, completion on defaults, and completion on history.
Also maybe another key to sort history items by recency/frequency
in the completion list.
