I don't necessarily disagree.  `local-parsing' has its advantages as
well (mostly it's more robust in cases where we got the syntax wrong,
e.g. because Emacs doesn't know/understand the detailed syntax, or
because the buffer's text is syntactically incorrect).
This said, it should be possible to get the best of both worlds.
