Many commands in isearch-mode-map explicitly allow and use a prefix argument (C-q, C-r, C-s, C-w, ...). isearch-yank-kill (C-y) and isearch-yank-pop (M-y) accept one, but it is unused. I don't see what meaning could be attached to a numeric argument to isearch-yank-kill or isearch-yank-pop, so I think that using C-u to start an interactive selection with these two commands would make sense.

The problem is that C-u has other meaning in 'C-u M-y' where it puts point at beginning and mark at end.

Are you sure? I don't see this, I do not see any difference between C-s M-y and C-s C-u M-y.
