No one tried this feature, but surprisingly it's very convenient.
So I could implement only low-level support for this feature in isearch.el,
then more high-level commands could be implemented somewhere else.

No, unfortunately there keys are not natural.

Do you mean a new boolean user option to define whether `C-M-y'
should yank but at the beginning/end in a reverse search?
