I have another idea (I'm sorry, it didn't occur to me earlier).

C-M-w could be used as a key switching between word and character
modes, i.e. after typing C-M-w in isearch mode subsequent
C-w will pull a character and DEL will delete a character.
Another C-M-w will switch back to word mode with C-w and DEL
restoring their current meaning.

However, this might be too complicated to be useful.

So unless someone finds this idea worth considering further,
a simpler solution with C-M-y to pull and C-M-w to delete
a character will be installed.
