it should invoke
if the last complete node is a valid keyword but it is still undecided,
which one it represents, e.g. the dot could appear at different
locations in your grammar thus the grammar element 'keyword' is not yet
assigned. Looks like a bug to me if it does not invoke that method.
A possible fix is to invoke that method explicitly for such situations,
possibly guarded by isLikelyToBeValidProposal(..)
