IMO it is important that typeahead in the file chooser works just like
typeahead in all other list and tree views. I don't think that
changing the behaviour of typeahead is a good idea. I also doubt that
it will silent the people asking for an entry box.

Here's what I do to achieve that:  Ctrl-O, "/t", Enter

Here's what I do to achieve that:  Ctrl-O, "/t", Enter, "f", Enter

Your proposal makes some sense, I am not convinced that it is a good
idea but it should probably be considered.
