I can see your point, but my gut feeling is perhaps not the same.

Also consider the 4th point I made:

I any case I think it is important that the key sequences for adding
at the beginning and end of the search string are similar. There are 4
yank commands in isearch for adding at the end. How about adding shift
to these to add at the beginning?
