There is already such an option: `lazy-highlight-cleanup'.
When nil, highlighting is not removed after the search.
You can use `M-x lazy-highlight-cleanup' to manually remove it.

BTW, I use C-RET to exit the search without pushing the search string
into the search ring.  Very useful to not stuff the search history
with unnecessary search strings.
