The weight of opinion seems to be against you.

  I've always found the C-y binding in isearch "useless" and
  counter-intuitive. I'd much rather make C-y and M-y behave like they
  do in the minibuffer.

  While I'm sure there's someone in the world who has a use for
  searching for the entire next line, there are many, many more people
  who find it useful to search for items from the kill ring.

  I was reluctant about it in the first place.

Here is the motivation:
   bind `isearch-yank-line' to `M-s C-e' because `move-end-of-line' is
   on `C-e'.

Personally I have no opinion.
