I've run into the same problem in sql-mode; the need to alter the font-lock 
rules after font-lock-mode has been enabled.  My current solution is as follows:

    ;; Force font lock to reinitialize if it is already on
    ;; Otherwise, we can wait until it can be started.
    (when (and (fboundp 'font-lock-mode)
               (boundp 'font-lock-mode)
      (font-lock-mode -1)
      (font-lock-mode 1))

The `defontify' seems to be the ticket to get font-lock to recalc its settings 
and actually reperform the fontification.  My original solution used internals 
from font-lock that were not version stable.

Stefan, can you confirm that this approach should work?  The docs for `font-
lock-defontify' certainly imply that this function should do what we are 
looking for.  Thanks.
