Thank you for the pointer. FWIW, I checked the docs of forward-word
which only talks about buffer syntax tables. Perhaps that should
either reference the Word Motion docs or it should also describe the
whole picture.

Also, as I understand the thread it seems like this is "by design" and
there's no good/accepted way to get it to behave as I want without
risking breaking unknown things.
