Eventually, yes. (And user-configurable key bindings to go with them.)

Currently, Cmd-Escape jumps to the next bullet, though I am intending
to change this; I'm thinking that TAB (forward) and Shift-TAB
(backward) would be more natural. These would apply only within the
scope of the current completion text; otherwise, TAB would simply
insert a tab character.

Yes, I remember seeing this and am interested in doing something like
it in the future.

Is latexmk part of TeX Live or other major distributions? (If not,
should it be?)
