It is already done but...

...could be improved with highlighting of searched string in view
- album/tag/etc list, image plates (like in Konqueror, KPDF)

Definitely not red. Red means something is Wrong(tm). I think green would
be OK. Especially that it is already used in such role in filter fields.

IMO yes.
