    Alan's "proposal" wrt scrolling is not a proposal.  It has been part of 
    since 2003/2/24, according to a comment in isearch.el.  Blame its admission 
    the Emacs maintainer back then, I guess. ;-)

    It is a user _option_, and by default the behavior is the one you prefer.
    (FWIW, I prefer the same behavior as you for this: `C-v' exits Isearch.)

Since the default was not change, I have nothing against it.
I may have been the one to approve it, at that period.
