Functions can return values, throw exceptions, and queue events to report
success or failure. requestAutoComplete() returns void, has no way to throw an
exception (it doesn't even have arguments), and it queues either an
'autocomplete' event or it fires a bunch of 'invalid' events (at various form
controls) followed by an 'autocompleteerror' event, the latter of which has a
reason field with three codes.

I don't think it makes sense for requestAutocomplete() to reject with an
exception, nor do I think it makes sense for it to resolve in the case it would
have fired 'autocompleteerror'.
