No, I don't think so.  The handler of the `fontified' property checks
for the property's value being nil only once, and then runs all the
functions in fontification-functions in a loop.  The relevant code is

Stefan, could you perhaps show a reproducible test case for this?

  /* Get the value of the `fontified' property at IT's current buffer
     position.  (The `fontified' property doesn't have a special
     meaning in strings.)  If the value is nil, call functions from
     Qfontification_functions.  */
  if (!STRINGP (it->string)
      && it->s == NULL
      && !NILP (Vfontification_functions)
      && !NILP (Vrun_hooks)
      && (pos = make_number (IT_CHARPOS (*it)),
          prop = Fget_char_property (pos, Qfontified, Qnil),
          /* Ignore the special cased nil value always present at EOB since
             no amount of fontifying will be able to change it.  */
          NILP (prop) && IT_CHARPOS (*it) < Z))
      int count = SPECPDL_INDEX ();
      Lisp_Object val;

      val = Vfontification_functions;
      specbind (Qfontification_functions, Qnil);

      if (!CONSP (val) || EQ (XCAR (val), Qlambda))
        safe_call1 (val, pos);
          Lisp_Object globals, fn;
          struct gcpro gcpro1, gcpro2;

          globals = Qnil;
          GCPRO2 (val, globals);

          for (; CONSP (val); val = XCDR (val))
              fn = XCAR (val);

              if (EQ (fn, Qt))
                  /* A value of t indicates this hook has a local
                     binding; it means to run the global binding too.

                     does, we must ignore it to avoid an endless
