As has been already stated quite a few times -- yes.

This is a nice abstract goal, but it doesn't seem important enough to
even pay the small unnecessary overhead of font-lock.

If you're so bothered by these exceptions to the `rule', why not just do
it right, and implement one of the simpler suggestions made recently
(e.g., have font-lock check for a buffer-local variable holding a
function to do the work of turning on or off fontification, which
defaults to the current font-lock)?
