I am not an area expert for shell completion, but as a mere user, unless the shell completion in a directory where I have README.txt file, responds to $ cat EAD<TAB> and completes the request to $ cat README.txt I would find such a behaviour quite confusing. On the other hand if $ git log feat<TAB> expands to $ git log feature/issue- then another <TAB> after that would offer 123-add-feature and 143-fix as candidates, or instead of <TAB> if I type "123<TAB>" and get it expanded to the full feature/issue-123-add-feature, then I wouldn't find it confusing or unnatural.
