IMHO the way readline (and implicitly bash) implement incremental
history search (bound to C-r/C-s) is great from a UI point of
view. And that UI has been in use for a long time. 
It would be great to have something similar in emacs. 

[I am not quite sure how similar is your proposal to readline, if
it is, it would be nice to have].
