I have to agree. I became so frustrated with M-x TeX-doc that I ended up rolling my own function to do exactly as you describe.

Of course, another option is to make an enhancement to texdoc (the ultimate tool) to provide a list of these 'keys' for completion's sake. A close inspection of texdoc's own documentation [1] might obviate this, however.

Dear all,

am I the only one who finds `TeX-doc' overly complicated to the point
it's sometimes useless?  It fails to find documentation for many
packages and classes, also pretty common ones like "babel", "fontenc",
and "memoir".  Wouldn't it better if it simply runs "texdoc NAME"?
Aucompletion is cool, but in this case is often useless as the
manual's basenames don't have to, and many times don't, match the name
of the package.
