`C-x w h' is not available until hi-lock.el is loaded, but `M-s h'
is the pretty harmless and convenient key binding to keep the
isearch highlighting permanent in the entire buffer.

Your patch looks like a good idea, so perhaps the same thing
should be applied also to occur, keep-lines, flush-lines, etc.
(in a new unified function `read-regexp').  This means that
e.g. `C-s string M-x keep-lines RET' will provide the last
isearch string as the minibuffer default input value.
