I guess you know this already but just in case: popping up the infobox is a 
rather simple task using shortcuts (Ctrl-I per default).

Anyway, your request makes pretty much sence to me and could IMHO save one 
some time while taging images.

This IS possible. Just use the search dialog. Maybe you just didn't show the 
token pane in the dialog? However, using boolean logic is not that simple 
for non-technical users i would say. How would one know, that using '!' 
infront of a keyword or token inverts the meaning?

see above.
