Even in *nix, `ls' without options or with `-1' lists just file names.
But I agree that in Dired the best default is to list details and allow
isearch to search everything.  I regularly use isearch to search
filenames, but sometimes also need to search file sizes and dates.

I have one idea: if the initial point position before search is on the
filename, then search filenames only.  If the initial position is on the
date, then search dates only, and so on for other ls columns.
