I don't think it would be wrong to make query-replace work analogously
to isearch-forward with respect to invisibility properties, even in
light of the upcoming release.  And I pointed out where, in a previous
analysis of the situation, I had found a suitable vicinity for adding
the required mechanism with a least invasive change.  A change I would
think tolerable to make yet, as it has pretty local consequences.

In contrast, I think that a hook such as the one Stefan is thinking of
would be opening a can of worms I don't particularly enjoy to see at
this point of time.
