 Would it be possible in grep to have a flag to

I don't think that's feasible, because the regex used to match text is
buried in grep's COMMAND argument.  My igrep.el package reads separate
REGEX and FILES arguments, which makes it much easier, and Javier and I
are working to get your suggestion implemented.  Look for it on
gnu.emacs.sources in the next few weeks.
