I agree fully with this last comment, so maybe we should look
for ways to build the correct behavior into the default.  One
solution might be to have ?action=search always use the
contents of Main.SearchWiki as its markup, regardless of
the pagename that is entered.

Another thought:

This seems like it could be accomplished by modifying $GroupHeaderFmt,
something like...

if ($action=='search') {
   $GroupHeaderFmt = '(:include $Group.GroupHeader:)(:nl:)(:include Main.SearchWiki:)(:nl:)';
   $action = 'browse';
