Since incrementality of word search is not well-defined,
it makes sense to type the word in non-incremental mode indeed.

One problem I noticed is that it's not easy to get back to incremental
mode: after typing a word in non-incremental mode ‘M-s w RET it’
typing ‘C-s’ in the minibuffer doesn't go back to incremental mode.
Also ‘C-s C-s’ doesn't reuse the previous word search.
We need to fix this.
