Here's a wild idea:

If replace string contains \?, allow user to edit the replacement
string in the minibuffer [after confirming this replace] -- 

In the buffer, \? is removed, and but cursor is positioned at its position
in the string.

If string contains multiple \?, one option is just to ignore further
occurrences, another it to let TAB cycle between them in the minibuffer.
