We would expressly not being claiming that wikisearch is a part of our
public API, correct?

What kind of testing would be involved for doing a release of the
wikisearch contrib? Just unit tests as is done with it as part of the 1.4.x

Would the releases from the contrib repo need to have version numbers that
match the 1.4.x line, or would a compatibility statement for each release
be sufficient?
