You have not read carefully enough :)

     Finally, the two special modes of menu selection, namely
     interactive mode and incremental search can be pre-selected with
     this style. By including the word `interactive' in the value,
     interactive mode will be entered immediately when menu selection
     is started and the string `search' does the same for incremental
     search. To select backward incremental search, include the string

It is not default because it is still experimental, it is slow (yes, it _is_
