Of course.  Except it would actually make a difference w.r.t behavior
rather than just performance.  I expect it would only be enabled in some
particular buffers where it proves necessary.  Maybe the problematic
regexps could be specially labelled in font-lock-keywords so that only
relevant regexps get this kind of treatment.
