The "or better" sounds reasonable.  Perhaps someone will attempt that,
but in the meantime I think just avoiding the discouraged/mostly
deprecated INITIAL-INPUT argument would be a good improvement.

 link

* lisp/ol.el (org-store-link): Use completing-read's DEF argument
rather than INITIAL-INPUT, which is discouraged (see Elisp manual) and
may hide the other choices depending on the completion framework.
