Actually one of the benefits of your proposal is that it opens up the
possibility of freeing the M-y binding.


Why "free" the M-y binding if it means jailing M-n and M-p?  M-y does
nothing useful unless preceded by C-y today, so in that sense it's
already "free".

It's so convenient to have a kill-ring browser, i don't understand why
emacs have not one and continue cycling blindly to find something in
kill-ring...


It's still much better than any other text editor I know of. And either way, there are already third-party alternatives if the Emacs defaults isn't good enough.

I think it would be better if we rebind M-y completely to enter a new mode which browses the kill ring in the minibuffer. But leave C-y alone.
