However, wouldn't it be much easier to deal with autocompletion by assuming that anywhere a noun could go, if it doesn't match after they hit return <i.e. during normal command processing> to try to complete it, and if not unique, send some message back to the user stateing as much, maybe even a list of the possible completions available given the partial input. That way you don't have to fool around with character at a time input.
