Possibly. But consider Stefan's comment:

My favourite soultion would also be to simply remove any manipulation
of inhibit-point-motion-hooks from isearch-search.

If you decide to leave it in and make it more flexible than with my
suggested patch, e.g. thorugh overlays, please also add a simple
option that just requires setting some variable, so as to keep the
simple case simple. Whatever the solution, anything will be better
than the current totally inflexible scheme.

Thanks for addressing this issue, best regards,
