Actually, now icomplete-mode supports in-buffer completion quite well.

By asynchronous completion, I just mean being able to type, and trigger
completion, and have completions appear incrementally as they are
computed, without interfering with you continuing to type.  I don't
think that stops immediate feedback for typing.
I believe this is achievable by just wrapping code with while-no-input.

icomplete-exhibit uses while-no-input, FWIW.
