That's an interesting idea.  I think for my use case, both "store the
aborted search string" and "store the successful part of the aborted
search" would work fine and would be an improvement over the
current situation.

Emacs does not allow editing it via DEL (tho I use a local patch that
does), but it can still be edited via M-e.
