BTW, Google is doing experiments about using continuous search in their search results: ousbey.com/blog/live-updating-google-search-results

comment What systematic methods there are for designing user interfaces?
Those links that you gave appear to mostly contain instructions about graphic design and implementation details. They are not telling that how to find out what the users need and how to design a solution to fulfill those needs, so they are not what I'm looking for.

comment Saving & restoring undo stack — good or bad?
@Robert Local history would need to be its own feature, because it requires its own UI for recovering old revisions (see the demo at jetbrains.com/idea/training/demos/local_history.html). But it's good to have also Ctrl+Z at the same time, because Ctrl+Z can be more convenient for undoing small typos. Pressing Ctrl+Z modifies the document, so it should add a new revision to local history.

When Google reports how long it took to make a search, it's usually around 0.1-0.3 seconds. That's fast enough to implement a continuous search, so the amount of data to be searched is not a limiting factor even with full search results. It's just a matter of choosing the right algorithms and having enough servers to support the expected number of concurrent users. Where there is a will, there is a way.
