We'll get you all some time or other.

You'd probably consider it schizophrenic, but that's why I have
font-lock-mode turned off, while still using preview-latex
<URL:http://preview-latex.sourceforge.net> extensively.  And so far I
have resisted demands to make preview-latex act on its own: it works
only on explicit command.  You can leave the messiest half-baked wrong
syntax at any point of time in any place in the buffer, and no
automatism is going to throw color or errors or strange displays at
you.
