    I cannot think of any particularly bad consequences of using the syntax 
    tables, but I do see some issues that perhaps need to be considered:

      - the definition of whitespace will become mode-dependent;

Really?  Which modes change this?

I don't think it would be a problem if this were affected
by some modes, I just am surprised that there are any modes that
would do so.

      - Lisp programs that modify syntax tables could affect the 
        trailing-whitespace feature; in particular, if some unexpected 
        characters are defined to have whitespace syntax, users of trailing 
        whitespace might become surprised by the results.

I think this would be a change for the better in such a case.

Could you make the change?
