The issue is not how to exit Isearch.  The issue is how to go forward
one sentence or capitalize a word while in Isearch.  What you are
saying is that a user who spots a word to be capitalized during
Isearch needs to do at least 2 things: exit Isearch with some key,
then type M-c.  Jury wants just M-c within Isearch to do both.
