1) No, it is only available via an opennic domain (grep.geek)
2) There is no distinction made between opennic and icann results.  There are many opennic sites which have mirrors on icann domains, and there are some icann sites (like which are specifically indexed as part of the project.

Is your search eangine already available on an IANA address, like, for the customer?

2) and does it then contain indexed .glue or .geek sites of opennic, apart from IANA sites?

It isn't necessarily a problem at all.  I think it's more that some want 
an OpenNIC search engine to find content unique to OpenNIC and label 
mirrors as such.

Why wouldn't you want to index domains that are still available over
ICANN domains? Because of limited indexing power and that Google
probably has already indexed it?

If thats your reason, and you decide to truncate results, then you
should tell what ICANN domain it is (or even provide a link to search
that ICANN domain for the same terms with google).

Personally, I run an Apache config that serves both my ICANN domain
and my Opennic domain from the same folder. I do this because what
would I want to put on my OpenNIC domain that I wouldn't also want to
put on my ICANN domain?  I use Opennic because it allows my to have
shorter names (good for command line stuff like ssh) and it has cool,
creative TLDs.
