As a Cocoa developer I was long envious of this feature being Carbon-
only, which lead me to believe it stems from Classic, and not OS X/NeXT.
Personally I like it very much, because there are often menu items
which have slight variations, but putting them all in the menu would
result in clutter (e.g. TM has 5 variations of “Paste”) -- and often
the slight variations are only needed by expert users -- I agree
there is a problem with discoverability, OTOH there's nothing like
having a used a program for half a year and finding a new time-saving

This feature is intentionally left out from the UI since it's not
something I officially “support”. The action methods to call it are
named ISIM_incrementalSearch: and ISIM_reverseIncrementalSearch:
since it's basically just reproducing an NSTextView input manager
patch for my OakTextView (i.e. it was intended only so that users of
ISIM wouldn't lack this functionality in TM).
