    I still think it wrong to change the text according to where it is

I agree -- I get a very bad feeling about that.

    As far as I know, text properties are also subject to undo treatment.

That is another good argument.
                This would appear to call at most for overlays 

At present, strings cannot have overlays.  And I am not sure
if overlays are really right for this data; just because text properties
have a bad aspect, that doesn't mean overlays don't.

There could be some other internal cache for this.

It calls for more thought.

That is cleaner, for sure.  It could also be slower, but how much?
