This might be good if it does not deny one more key
for exiting the search.

What would that look like?  Can you make a mock-up?

It would be easy to display a message like
  All but C-g C-h C-q C-r C-s  C-x 8 RET  C-w C-y C-\ C-^ M-n M-p M-s M-% C-M-d 
C-M-i C-M-y C-M-z C-M-% exit
except that it it is too wide for the screen.

By the way, this shows how many keys which used to exit the seach and
thn execute have been redefined over the years to do something else.
I was sure there were more than the few someone showed me from 1992 or so.
