With a) you mean that it's not obivous enough that a window is showing 
a filtered list? As in it'd need to change the background color to 
indicate that?
As for b) I'm not sure how you'd envision it to work in icon mode. But 
right now it'll just gracefully fall back to the typeahead selection 
(the current default) in icon mode, so I don't really see a problem 
with that.
