As I understand, the proposal for M-% M-% was with the intention
that the second M-% would repeat the last replacement only when typed
in the empty minibuffer.  So you still could use M-% to replace strings
in the minibuffer if the input string is not empty (yanked or inserted).
Anyway, this seems irrelevant now with the M-% RET solution.
