I used to have this set to file, but then I _always_ had to add the file
name even for local headlines. I now switched to ido using:

(setq ido-everywhere t)
(setq ido-enable-flex-matching t)
(setq ido-max-directory-size 100000)
(ido-mode (quote both))

(setq org-refile-use-outline-path nil)
(setq org-completion-use-ido t)
(setq org-outline-path-complete-in-steps nil)
(setq org-refile-targets '((org-agenda-files :maxlevel . 5)
(("~/org/all.org_done" "~/org/work.org_done") :maxlevel . 5) ))

(defun ap/verify-refile-target ()
  "Exclude todo keywords with a done state from refile targets"
  (or (not (member (nth 2 (org-heading-components)) org-done-keywords)))
      (save-excursion (org-goto-first-child))
(setq org-refile-target-verify-function 'ap/verify-refile-target)

which works very well for me, especially once I added the

exactly what I wanted :)
