One compromise that has been suggested would be to create a new option for projects and action groups that would allow the user to specify whether they should automatically be marked complete when all children were marked complete. As long as the user could specify which action was the default, I would be happy with that.
I'm a little more flexible with the autocompletion idea on action groups though. Right now, I'm not completely satisfied with having to go into Planning mode whenever I complete everything in an action group. I'm not sure what the answer is to that dilemma (maybe autocompletion) but there are other threads for that topic. My only suggestion would be to have two separate preferences for autocompletion, one for projects and one for action groups.
