Presumably the "region to be fontified gets extended" by resetting its
fontified text-property to nil.  `jit-lock-after-change' should be able
to do this if you provide the correct start and end values.  But keep in
mind that with jit-lock redisplay immediately triggers refontification
of displayed text whose fontified text-property has been reset to nil.
This refontification won't recognize any "starting tag" preceding
window-start unless you explicitly tell it to go there, for example, by
using a multiline property.  If you decide on the `font-lock-multiline'
property, every time you insert or delete a character nearby, redisplay
has to refontify the entire contiguous area covered by the property.
