Your last sentence makes sense, and argues against your first one. It's
about personal preference, not about right vs wrong, correct vs incorrect.

FWIW, I often sort by time too - very often. But often I'm interested mainly
in the chronological order and I don't really care about seeing the exact
times. Different people sometimes do the same thing differently.

No one is proposing to take away your valuable details. This is a discussion
about isearch in Dired. If you "often search for permissions", then that is
an argument for keeping the normal isearch bindings. So we agree.
