    I think M-x grep and M-x occur should have as similar a UI as possible.

All else being equal, I agree.  People have tried making interfaces
for grep that separate the arguments.  I think one such is actually
installed as an alternative.  But they are simply less convenient
than M-x grep.

As the author of igrep.el, I respectfully disagree.  By separating the
arguments, you can provide access to independent completion (primarily
for file names) and history (primarily for search strings/expressions).
