This idea really intrigues me. I wish there were a way I could turn this test on to see it for myself. I have a feeling it could surface a lot of value beyond pure Search Suggestions. Maybe it should be called "SERP Suggestions".
I also have a feeling that it could drive the average search user crazy - thinking of a few relatives who still can't figure out some basics. Seeing the screen change so much would probably freak them out.
One more thought - I hope all those temporary SERPs don't allow Firefox to prefetch - that would really confuse the server logs.
