Maybe the problem is "your" notion of "multiline font-lock"?
There's no such thing as a "multiline font-lock" feature or
functionality, but only "Multiline Font Lock Constructs", i.e. there are
cases where a major mode needs to get font-lock to recognize elements
that span multiple lines.

It is about having to extend the refontification area because
refontifying a single-line is not sufficient, presumably because the
major mode has to handle a multiline font-lock construct.
