I think it's pretty disruptive (`intangible' properties already tend to
break a lot of code).  Also, when there are two blocks of C code separated
by something else, it's not clear whether the first should influence the
second or not.
I expect that mmm-mode can be extended to use point-motion hooks like
point-enter and point-leave to simulate your suggestions.  I think such
experimentation is necessary before being able to decide what kind
of additional support is needed, if any.  Sadly I haven't heard much from
mmm-mode developers on this list.  Maybe we should invite them so they
can share their horror stories and wishes.
