Hello Bastien,

Mainly FYI: Please note that this kind of solution may users of org make
think that `isearch-query-replace' and `isearch-query-replace-regexp'
(bound to M-% and C-M-%) would be able to handle invisible text.  This
is not the case, however - these commands never ignore invisible text
and don't hesitate to replace stuff in regions that the user doesn't
see.  This is dangerous!

I filed two bug reports about these problems some time ago:

  24.1.50; Suggestion: Let M-i in isearch cycle `search-invisible'

  feature request: `isearch-query-replace' should open invisible text

Sadly, both things were not yet realized.  But nevertheless I think it
would be good if we could find a solution for the whole of Emacs, not
only for Org.  I think org is not very special in that regards, this
issue also applies e.g. for hs-minor-mode.  Although I'm not against a
temporary solution for org-mode alone.
