I realize it all sounds very natural to you, Dmitry, because you designed it.

This advantage clearly should be the most convincing, but you've skipped the other one: non-proliferation of new query-replace commands.

However, accept that is not as natural to everyone else.  I too want a command
that lets me immediately jump to the first hit, rather than populating a very
large search results list only to visit it.  There is value in

First hit of what? We already have three different commands which search for different things, and return replace-able results.

If we want the xref UI to be reusable, that would bring new search commands in the future. Do you want each of them to come with a corresponding query-replace command?

The fact that the xref.el API makes this now hard to do is a deficiency in
that API, not an indication that we shouldn't be doing it. Let's fix the API
-- which is still considered experimental. Your generator suggestion sounds
like a good approach.

Sure, I'm all for that.
