Current default behavior for 4.x is autocomplete best match, not sure why this

It was a UE decision to do it this way a long time ago.  Also, the selection
when using this pref flashes and is annoying.

What were the reasons behind this decision?

I don't see any flashes and it is hardly annoying (using v1.6). Autocomplete
Best Match is a hidden gem that is used by default in browsers like IE6 and
Safari, except that it's much better implemented in Mozilla. Is there any reason
to keep this only for those in the know?
