You can get close to what you want by:

(define-key easy-kill-base-map [remap self-insert-command] 'easy-kill-exit)

(put 'easy-kill-exit 'easy-kill-exit t)
(defun easy-kill-exit ()

One common use pattern is M-w and then move around to place the copied
text, which should silently exit easy-kill. Most keys should not be
intercept by easy-kill.

You could add these keys to easy-kill-base-map.
