OpenStreetMap is not an end user mapping site, so doing something because google maps does it is never a good argument.

Displaying markers automatically only really works well when all the results are in a reasonably small area - otherwise you just wind up with a fully zoomed out view with a load of markers scattered over it. It would be interesting to see how well a typical search did work, but I'm not entirely sure how you decide what is and is not typical.
