IMO, it would be better if that special way of searching was
consistent with the standard Isearch wrt the lazy highlighting.

In step #3 above, the lazy highlighting is performed well until the
search begins to fail, point at which the lazy highlighting is
deactivated.  As I said, this behavior is (a) inconsistent with the
standard Isearch (try to do the same in text mode) and (b) less
informative for the user (there is indeed a match of "extensible" that
should be advised to the user).
