If I have the "yt" search keyword set to YouTube search, I'd like to type "yt something" on the Awesome Bar and see YouTube history/bookmarks on the autocomplete suggestions.

First attempt at a solution.

This technically works, and does exactly what I intended it to do, but my hack-o-meter is buzzing loudly about this patch. Attaching as a WIP.

ATM it excludes all suggestions that aren't in the same domain as the search engine (if I set 'bug' as the keyword for b.m.o., I won't see results from bug.com). This is the behavior I want, but might need some UX discussion. Or maybe not? After all, search keywords are a deeply hidden feature.

I think that typing a search keyword and returning only results limited to that particular page could surprise users, also cause the keyword functionality is expected be used to run a remote search.
Though, there isn't an expected outcome from search keywords in the locationbar as of now, so this could be one of those, it depends on what will happen when the bars will be eventually merged.

Note that this is the behavior for the "Add a Keyword for this Search" feature, only pages in the same domain are shown in the result list: http://cl.ly/image/3N120i1S3l1x

Ugh, disregard that, other things are shown when there are less history entries matching what you typed.
yes, only the first entry is used for bookmarks keywords.
