Of course.

Make the window higher! You could have 100 lines displayed.

GNU Emacs allows to display line numbers in the mode-line. Put in the 
customisations section of your init file:

        '(column-number-mode t)

In GNU Emacs 23.3b the variable isearch-mode-map contains some mouse events. 
Maybe you can add mouse-4 and mouse-5...

The others?

Maybe the developers feel like me that scrolling around is a bit imprecise and 
you likely lose the place where isearch found the text...
