The global completion list (i.e. when not completing a file name or object attribute) is already full of all the built-ins, imported modules and variables.  So IMO we'd need a good reason to add yet more options into the completions list.

Personally, I don't think that adding all of the keywords to that list would be helpful: They are all short words and most of them must be memorized anyways to work with Python.

For instance, I don't recall this being brought up by those who often teach newcomers with IDLE, such as Raymond Hettinger, when discussing what's missing in IDLE. I'd be happy to get more input from them on this.
