You don't have to convince me because I don't disagree with you :-)

Multi-node I-search in the Info reader already doesn't show "Multi",
it is identical to a simple search until it's about to cross
to the next Info node.

Multi-file I-search could do the same.  What I'm trying to understand is
the logic of showing "Multi" and should it be customizable?

What you want is possible to do by the following patch
that will show the prefix only when the user explicitly
invokes multi-isearch.  And customizability of the I-search
prompt was recently discussed in bug#12988.

2. The documentation could be improved with something like this:
