Search behavior - done button

I frequent want to look at a number of search results without the trouble of creating a new custom perspective. This is made more laborious b/c viewing an item and clicking the Done button doesn’t take me back to search results, viz.

Current behavior:

Search > result list > item > Done button > cancels search

Preferred behavior:

Search > result list > item >
Done button > returns to result list
Clear Search button > cancels search

Alternatively keeping search history in a pop-down would be helpful, but not the best solution.

Might be nice to save a search as a simple perspective. Searching is a natural first option, but then I might realize that I could use this as a perspective or the start of a perspective.

Yes I agree - was going to post the same but you beat me to it. (The obvious precedent is Spotlight for Mac…).
