Console page - Tab usage

Wiki Page:
At the very end of the "Using The Console" section is the below line:
The Tab key will auto-complete commands and player names.
However, this doesn't capture the true power of TAB. It does autocomplete, but it also gives contexual help text when used against each stage of a completed command. If a space is left after a command word it will list the options available.

I was trying to write this cleanly and just failed a few times, so thought I'd flag it here and see if a clear & precise explanation just came to anyone else?

"intellisense" is one trademarked name for this functionality, but no non-trademarked name has ever gained enough traction for it to be useful as a label :(

intelligent code completion
seems the next best thing then. It looks to be a generic term, is googlable and on Wikipedia. ... completion
