Wouldn't this sort of property potentially affect lots of text in the
buffer?  Overlays are not a good choice for such a thing, and the
overlay interface is generally worse for things which really are text
properties, which these seem to be...

Text-properties could be used `with-silent-modifications' or some-such
to avoid buffer modification, as is usually done with fortification.


Logic, n. The art of thinking and reasoning in strict accordance with the
limitations and incapacities of the human misunderstanding.
