    Are you arguing that isearch non-exiting commands shouldn't exist, or
    that they shouldn't be able to take a prefix argument?

Neither.  I am saying that the non-printing characters that are exceptions
to the rule should be as few as possible.

(The rule is that they exit Isearch and then execute normally.)

I think the existing exceptions are already so numerous
as to constitute a nuisance.
