An example of where this won't work is with an *Occur* buffer, if the
user just wants to temporarily turn on/off fontification, but has killed
the associated buffer(s).  The occur command will fail in this case.

A somewhat similar situation could happen with a *Kill Ring* buffer; if
the user has done more killing before typing M-x font-lock-mode, then
the entry they want to see unfontified could have been rotated off the
kill ring.
