Incremental search doesn't do macro translation like that.

I see.  Is this considered a shortcoming?

Being able to bind \ef and Alt+f to different commands in various programs is useful, but without bash coming along for the ride, I might have to go back to XTerm*altSendsEscape.  This is, of course, only one usage case.

This isn't close to true. If \ef and Alt+f generate distinct character
sequences, you can bind them separately. If they don't, you can't. This
has nothing to do with whether or not incremental searching expands
keyboard macros.
