One caveat: Different *nixes have different features.

For example I'm a fan of the rm- P flag, but that's BSD only.

If I type "!man rm" the result doens't mention -P as option.

So we might want to make sure that alternate man pages (e.g. bsd etc) show up below the instant answer in case someone's looking for something a bit obscure.

Another example: "pbcopy" is OSX only.

As a designer I'd say give the most likely result as an instant answer, and show edge cases in the first few results.
