Very cool!

However, I find it dangerous: Google may be doing clever stuff, or may
do so in the future. E.g. if they introduce a rule that knows you cannot
use "を" with "読める" (*), so they fix that grammar mistake and return
you the "が読める" hits.

I seriously doubt that Google would do this. Look at how they handle mispelling (sic):

Having said that, I use the technique all the time :-).

Well, I owe you and Don both a pint for pointing it out to me. Collect at the nomikai this Friday. :)
