being part of the GIMP UI design team, I have to ask:

can you give a statement what this is suppose to achieve.

I can see the value in having searchable all the tooltip text
and have that mapped to obscure plugins, to find them.
and why not extend that with more keywords, or even the
documentation for searching (to find the right command,
or to look up documentation).

but doing a delete? the Delete key is a hell of a lot faster for that.

doing a ellipse selection? click on the tool icon.

all this typing, then scrolling, is a very slow way of doing that.
and GIMP is a tool for working fast.
