I perceive the results-as-you-type thing as more of a toy -- not a usability development. Not just TW, but anywhere it's used. It may make sense when it's attached to a powerful back-end server database, but not so much when you have a local, non-indexed data source. In the case of TW, it interferes with usability particularly on small devices. Re-rendering with each keystroke is another related problem that affects all TW's performance. I can only assume most users are not touch typists, have very powerful machines, have small TW's, or are using screen keyboards.
