Of _course_ this is the first request you hear for it because the
changes that would make it convenient have not even been made.

grep-find _currently_ offers to edit the command and nobody complained
about that.  So I don't see how this sanctifies to take away that
possibility without an easy way of accessing it in case of need, short
of redefining an alias.

For what it's worth, AUCTeX's command dispatcher will understand a
prefix-command as a request to edit the command that is going to be
sent to the shell, and this functionality has been added because it
was requested.
