+1 to keep the current behaviour (at least as an option).

One of things I do really often:

  1) Select a string I want to replace and press ⌘E to make it the 
current search string.
  2) Select a part of my document.
  3) Press ⌘⌥F to do a “Find All” restricted to the current selection.
  4) Start typing to replace each occurance at once (multiple carets are 
such a great feature, btw!)

(I omit step 1 if the thing I want to replace is already the current 
search string.)
