I am convinced that, in the long term, we need an analogous, fast, global

be Texinfo's "{" and "}" or Lex's and Yacc's "%{", "%}" and "%%" or
"literate programing"'s boundaries between narrative text and executable
code, or "here documents" within a shell script.

Until we have this, I think we'll be entangling ourselves in an ever
stickier web of ad-hoc workarounds.

For what it's worth (sticking my oar in) I agree - and it would be even better if such regions could be arbitrarily put into other major modes...
(although that's more of a blue-sky wishlist thing...)

I believe mmm-mode tries do do something along these lines but from what I hear it's quite hard to set up and get working.
