> I am in agreement with you.  I agree that CompleteableFuture seems to make more sense for asynchronous events than CompletionStage.  Given that it is widely acceptable throughout the platform, and the naming aligns more closely with asynchronous activity...I think CompleteableFuture would be a more consistent and standardized choice.
