After trying this I think the "[failing]" message doesn't look too nice.
As you mentioned, it is unnecessary due to the `isearch-fail' face.
But then this message still should be displayed in environments that don't
support the `isearch-fail' face.

The "[pending]" message should be changed too to address complaints
that it's unclear what does it mean.  Maybe something like
"[Search type changed]"

The "[wrapped]" message could be displayed only once after wrapping,
like e.g. in Firefox that displays the message
"Reached top of page, continued from bottom" or
"Reached end of page, continued from top".
