If there was a built-in vertical mode it would be better / more intuitive.

Could you try the branch feature/icomplete-vertical? I need some testers before adding it to master.

Alas no, I have been using the following to have icomplete-vertical for quite some time, it works perfectly well, so I don't see why a more complex implementation would be necessary.

(setq icomplete-prospects-height 6)
(setq icomplete-separator "\n")
(defun icomplete-vertical-minibuffer-setup ()
(setq truncate-lines t)
(setq-local completion-ignore-case t)
(setq-local read-file-name-completion-ignore-case t)
(setq-local read-buffer-completion-ignore-case t)
(setq icomplete-hide-common-prefix nil))
(add-hook 'icomplete-minibuffer-setup-hook #'icomplete-vertical-minibuffer-setup)
(defun icomplete-vertical-reformat-completions (completions)
  (let ((cnp (substring-no-properties completions)))
    (if (string-match "^\\((.*)\\|\\[.+\\]\\)?{\\(\\(?:.\\|\n\\)+\\)}" cnp)
        (format "%s \n%s"
                (or (match-string 1 cnp) "")
                (replace-regexp-in-string "^" (make-string (current-column) ? ) (match-string 2 cnp)))
(defun icomplete-vertical-adjust-minibuffer-height (completions)
(let* ((comp (icomplete-vertical-reformat-completions completions))
       (complen (length (split-string comp "\n"))))
  (if (> complen 1) (enlarge-window (- icomplete-prospects-height (1- (window-height)))))
(advice-add 'icomplete-completions :filter-return #'icomplete-vertical-adjust-minibuffer-height)

1) Internal functionalities try not to use advises.
2) The branch is not actually more complex, it just generates the
formatted vertical output form the beginning.
3) It does more or less the same you are doing but with a simpler

(icomplete-mode t)
(icomplete-format 'vertical)

4) We add arrow bindings to move
5) Add completion matching faces is also coming.

Some feedback about  branch : feature/icomplete-vertical  

I tried this branch with config:

  (icomplete-mode 1)
  (setq icomplete-format 'vertical)

And found this bug still exists:

Some related links about how to work around this bug:

Hope the problem of   disappearing prompt and entered text problem can be fixed in your branch.
