I do not know if my example is important, but here is how this problem came to my mind:

I am trying to use the excellent nxml-mode to build a web authoring environment in Emacs. This mode can tell what tags are allowed at a certain position in an XHTML document. This information could be used for building menus which perhaps would be good for beginners. However there are some computations required for that of course.

In this web authoring environment there are also cases when the existence of certain files could make difference for what to enable in the menus.

I realize this is not a very strong case. I could for example use a popup menu instead to show what tags are allowed. And the normal way to check this in nxhtml-mode is just completion the normal way in Emacs.
