When calling a method that has a set of parameters, the autocompletion displays the name of the current parameter as a viable option to select, even if it does not exist in the current context.

It is quite confusing.
VS disambiguates them with a trailing colon: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4994637/named-parameters-in-c-sharp-4-and-intellisense
This is a bug, not an enhancement. They are displayed exactly the same as locals, which is confusing.
It's not really confusing - I always know what I want/can type there and not waiting minutes in that context and be 'confused'. I think that people who find the old one confusing may be now even more confused because of the ':' - they don't know about the named argument call :)
But yes adding ':' is an enhancement there - we can need maybe another icon for that.
I would like to have a different icon for parameters - that would really be helpful.
