What I don't want to happen is that a disagreement between contributors
results in the maintenance of two separate solutions to similar problems, just
because of a difference in design and a lack of agreement.

Stefan had the prerogative to include his solution before, so I understand why
it's in emacs-25 now. But your concerns lead me to believe that his code
should be revisited. If `syntax-ppss' is not doing the job we need it to do --
to the extent that you have to implement new code to work around it -- that
indicate a potential problem.

I also want to make sure it's not just a documentation failure, or lack of
communication, before either ditching syntax-ppss, or introducing a new
mechanism to live alongside it.

Is it possible to summarize why syntax-ppss is not fulfilling your needs,
