Drew also suggested to express that more precise. Context is similar
to ivy-mode or helm or icomplete or ido, etc.

- imagine list of items in tabulated-list-mode

- user press / to open up the feature (real time incremental narrowing)

- when user starts typing the list of items in tabulated-list-mode are
  narrowing themselves visually and in real time. It is very similar
  to completion networks.

Then I can use it for browsing trees of knowledge and narrowing huge
index lists. Video below shows using tabulated-list-mode to brows the
three of knowledge (17M): 


In general I would like to have direct real time incremental narrowing
of collection instead of blowing up minibuffer, making modeline jump
up and down with ivy-mode and splitting windows.

Interface would be clean just as tabulated-list-mode is and minibuffer
could be used for narrowing.
