How do you imagine it could insert two separate history elements for
from-string and to-string simultaneously?  Maybe, C-M-p typed in the
from-string minibuffer should switch to the to-string reading, and
typing C-M-p in the to-string minibuffer should also change the prompt
that displays the from-string while reading the to-string, e.g.

Query replace: <C-M-p>

Query replace from1 with: to1 <C-M-p>

Query replace from2 with: to2 <C-M-p>
